 NEW YORK (AP) -Jarome Iginla and Vincent Lecavalier now have something else in common besides a stirring fight in the Stanley Cup finals, as they were chosen Thursday to be captains at the NHL All-Star game.
Iginla, the Calgary Flames captain, and Tampa Bay's Lecavalier will wear the 'C' on their sweaters Jan. 27 in Atlanta. Iginla is a Western Conference All-Star for the fourth time, and Lecavalier is set to make his third appearance for the East squad.
Their defining moment together came during Game 3 of the 2004 Stanley Cup finals when the scoring stars dropped their gloves and squared off. Lecavalier was the aggressor in that bout, but Iginla and the Flames earned the win that night to take a 2-1 series lead.
Lecavalier and the Lightning got the last laugh, winning their first title with a Game 7 victory.
Both players, voted to the All-Star starting lineups in fan balloting, are on pace to top their career highs in points.
Lecavalier entered Thursday tied for the NHL lead with 63 points.
