VIDEO: Jarome Iginla ties Guy Lafleur after scoring his 30th goal of the year

Mar 29, 2:22 PM

Jarome Iginla just can't stop scoring for the Boston Bruins this season, as the 36-year-old scored a pair Saturday afternoon and made history in the process.

His career total sits at 560 after slipping two goals by Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby in the second period. His record tying goal came after he retrieved the rebound from his own shot and back-handed the puck past Holtby. Not the prettiest goal of the 560, but they all count the same.

Last year's strike-shortened season broke up an impressive streak of 12 straight year's with 30 or more goals for Iginla. 

Assuming he breaks Lafleur's record this season, he will immediately be tied with Mike Modano at 561.
