Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir ofSports Illustrated,
I can’t help but think this is a series that Jarome Iginla will take to his grave if the B’s don’t pull it out.
It might not eat away at him quite like Calgary’s seven-game loss to Tampa Bay in the 2004 Stanley Cup Final, but he probably had a sense back then that there was still plenty of time to get his name on the mug.
There’s no way he’s feeling that security now. Iginla has to know that this could be his last chance for a ring.
So where’s the urgency? He scored a late goal in Game 3 on the deflection of an Andrei Meszaros point blast, but that was his only shot on net in the contest, matching his total from Game 2. He’s been ineffective because he’s chasing the puck instead of winning the battles and daring Montreal’s overmatched defense to stop him. Iginla has more to give…but he’s running out of time to give it.
more on both the games tonight, Boston/Montreal and Anaheim/LA....
