An annotated guide to this morning’s must-read hockey stories:
• Jarome Iginla reached the 30-goal benchmark in yesterday’s win over the Caps. His scorching hot March proves he’s not just a valuable part of the present. He can be a big part of the future, too…if the Bruins can figure out how to work him in under that cap.
• While Iggy’s been on a roll, the hands of another Boston scorer have turned to stone. And that might necessitate a shake-up in the team’s top six.
• As Toronto’s epic swing swoon reaches eight games, Chris Johnson points to an upside: the organization can no longer ignore the sizable cracks in the team’s foundation. That probably doesn’t bode well for the future of Randy Carlyle, right?
• Mike Zeisberger offers his take on the big changes coming in Hogtown.
