PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jarome Iginla is all set to make his Pittsburgh Penguins debut.
The former Calgary Flames captain, acquired early Thursday in Pittsburgh's latest blockbuster trade, was in the lineup Saturday against the New York Islanders.
Pittsburgh was looking for its 15th straight victory, which would be two shy of the NHL record set by Mario Lemieux and the 1992-93 Penguins.
Iginla, a six-time All-Star, arrived in Pittsburgh on Friday night and says he simply wants to fit in with the Penguins and work hard.
The 35-year-old forward had 525 goals and 570 assists in 1,219 regular-season games during 16 seasons with Calgary. He had nine goals and 13 assists in 31 games this season.
