The Bruins clinched the Atlantic Division Saturday with a 4-2 win over the Capitals at the Verizon Center [2].

Jarome Iginla had two goals in the win, making him the Bruins’ first free agent signing to ever score 30 goals in a season.

Iginla first got the B’s on the board when Carl Soderberg exited the penalty box in the second period and sent a pass ahead to Iginla, who beat Braden Holtby to make it 1-0. Later in the period, Soderberg scored his 15th goal of the season when he tipped a Patrice Bergeron [3] shot on the power play past Holtby. Forty-one seconds later, Iginla made it 3-0.

The Capitals got a goal back in the form of a Jason Chimera tally with 10 seconds left in the second period, but Bergeron made it a three-goal lead for the Bruins again with a power-play goal in the third period. Washington scored again in the final minute, but Boston was able to hold on.

Bergeron’s extended his streak to six games with a goal and left open the possibility that he could hit 30 himself this season. Bergeron’s current total makes for the second-most he’s had in a single season, as he scored 31 goals in the 2005-06 season.

Chad Johnson [4] picked up the win for the B’s, making 31 saves in the victory.
