Already riding a big winning streak, the Penguins' quest for the franchise's fourth Stanley Cup received a rocket-fueled boost late Wednesday night when general manager Ray Shero acquired six-time all-star forward Jarome Iginla from Calgary. All it took was the rights to a couple of prospects and a 2013 first-round draft pick, a pittance for a future Hall of Famer still searching for his first championship after 16 seasons in western Canada. Iginla did not suit up for Wednesday night's game against Colorado - snapping a streak of 441 consecutive games played - and waited for the phone to ring.

TUNE INTO any baseball telecast, especially in the bottom of the ninth with the game on the line, and you're likely to see a particular hitter's career numbers against that pitcher flash on the screen. In hockey, you're only likely to see a goaltender's career record against a certain opponent. Individual matchups are often lost in hockey. "Well, at least I know a lot of coaches pay attention to that type of stuff," Flyers netminder Ray Emery said, laughing. The game-inside-the-game tonight will be Senators forward Clarke MacArthur going up against Flyers goaltender Steve Mason.

The Flyers allowed a late Colorado power-play goal to tie the score Wednesday, then got beaten, 4-3, on Ryan O'Reilly's overtime tally with 19.9 seconds left at the Pepsi Center. "I thought we played a pretty good game, but we're finding ways to lose games," coach Craig Berube said after the Flyers' third straight defeat.
