This could be the last run at the Stanley Cup for several veterans: Selanne, Pittsburgh's Jarome Iginla and Jagr are among the names looking to get their name engraved on Lord Stanley's Cup.

Out of those three, only Iginla hasn't lifted the 35-pound trophy. Selanne won in 2007, and Jagr won back-to-back cups with Pittsburgh in '91 and '92. Iginla came as close as can be in 2004, losing in seven games to the Tampa Bay Lightning, after taking a 3-2 lead back to Calgary before Martin St. Louis forced a seventh game after scoring in the second overtime. Iginla and Jagr were both traded for the same reason: to help their teams lift the Stanley Cup.

With Pittsburgh battling the Islanders, Iginla must be getting worried that he'll never get the chance to lift the heralded trophy. Only time will tell.
