Iginla Buries No. 600 in Win over Kings

Jarome Iginla joined the NHL's prestigious 600-goal club with his 11th of the season to help propel the Avs to a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night in Denver.

"You have to get lucky for sure," said Iginla, of his tally, which was a cross-ice pass that bounced in off of Jake Muzzin's skate. "You have to get lucky at times. That was a lucky play. I was trying to walk in and see what would open up down low, and (Gabe Landeskog) was right in front, I think battling with Muzzin in front, and I was trying to put something in there for him through the screen for him."

Iginla becomes the 19th player in the history of the NHL to reach the 600-mark. Along with Jaromir Jagr, he is one of two active players to have reached the mark.
