Iginla: Bruins will be fine despite slow start

5 Comments

Jarome Iginla might not be a member of the Boston Bruins any more, but he still thinks highly of them.

Boston suffered a literal last-second loss to Iginla’s Colorado Avalanche Monday afternoon, which lowered the Bruins to 1-3-0 this season. Although the defeat has to be taken with a grain of salt given how close the game was, there were already some concerns about Boston’s slow start before Monday’s contest even started.

Iginla doesn’t think Bruins fans need to worry though.

“They’ve all been close games,” Iginla said, per CSN New England. “Getting [David] Krejci was a big boost for them, and I know they’ve got some guys out. I have no doubts that [the Bruins] will be just fine over there.”

Three of the Bruins’ first four games have been decided by just a goal, although Boston did suffer a 4-0 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Iginla has gotten off to a slow start himself, but the Bruins likely wish he was still with them, especially after Boston recorded just four goals in its first four games.

The Bruins were up against the ceiling though, which made it difficult for them to compete for Iginla’s services.
