PITTSBURGH - Jarome Iginla - whenever he gets here - will find a Pittsburgh Penguins dressing room ruthlessly focused.

It is meticulously calibrated right now, riding a 14-game winning streak going into Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders, and you wonder how dropping a player of Iginla’s stature into the mix will affect things.

Somebody who is contributing right now is going to get less minutes.

Somebody’s role is going to change.

Not to worry, said Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.

He sits in the first stall when you enter the Penguins dressing room at their practice facility, like a gatekeeper, and his stall is in the middle at the top of the horseshoe that forms the dressing room at Consol Energy Center, overseeing all.

Make no mistake about it, in case you were wondering, this is Crosby’s team and he’s making sure everybody is on point here.
