Yeah, I think he's trying to save face (I would have just mentioned the score). I would be making excuses too if someone 5 inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter clearly beat me in a fight. And Jarome isn't exactly a bad fighter either. Plenty of fighters drop the gloves well before the others. It's partially Iginla's fault that he instigated it (not in the penalty sense) then didn't have the wherewithall to realize a fight was going to ensue. Did he think Toots was scared of him?
