Report: Flames send captain Iginla to Bruins

Flames captain Jarome Iginla, the hottest commodity on the trade market, was sent to the Bruins on Wednesday night, a week from the trade deadline, for defenseman Matt Bartkowski, forward prospect Alex Khokhlachev and a first-round draft pick, Canada's TSN TV network reported.

Iginla, who has spent his entire 16-year career in Calgary, was a healthy scratch against the Avalanche, sparking speculation a trade was imminent. Bartkowski also was a healthy scratch against the Canadiens.

With the Flames most likely out of the playoffs again this year and Iginla a free agent this summer, Boston was among four teams for which the wing, 35, would have agreed to waive his no-trade clause for a chance at winning the Stanley Cup, reports said. The other teams were the Penguins, Blackhawks and Kings.

Iginla left the Saddledome in Calgary before the game and wasn't available for comment. After Tuesday night's loss to the Blackhawks, he wouldn't comment specifically on the trade situation, saying it would play itself out over the next few days.

Game highlights: Andrei Markov tied the score with 8.2 seconds left in regulation, and Brendan Gallagher scored the only shootout goal to give the Canadiens a 6-5 victory over the Bruins and second place in the Eastern Conference on Wednesday night. The Canadiens took the lead in the Northeast Division by a point over the Bruins, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit to lead 4-2 in the second period. … Mikko Koivu scored at 2:43 of overtime to give the host Wild a 4-3 comeback victory over the Coyotes and extend Minnesota's winning streak to seven and Phoenix's skid to seven.

Around the league: Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said he is compiling evidence from forensic doctors that will prove Penguins wing Matt Cooke deliberately sliced All-Star defenseman Erik Karlsson's Achilles tendon with a skate blade while the two were fighting for the puck against the boards in a game last month. Cooke was not penalized on the play and said it was an accident. The league said there was no need for supplemental discipline. Karlsson, winner of the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman last season, is out for the season. … Penguins All-Star defenseman Kris Letang is back on injured reserve, a day after coming off the list to play in a 1-0 win against the Canadiens, Pittsburgh's 13th straight victory. His first stint was for a lower-body injury. This one is for a different lower-body injury, the team said. The injury is a broken toe, media reports said. … Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros re-injured his left shoulder against the Rangers on Tuesday and is out indefinitely, general manager Paul Holmgren said.

    A.J. Andrews has taken over the spotlight in softball. Last year, the former Countryside High and LSU standout became the first female to win a Rawlings Gold Glove in the award's 59-year existence.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
