Bruins' Iginla out vs. Flyers, 'not a healthy scratch'
Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla was not in the lineup Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers and is "not a healthy scratch" according to the team.

Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla was not in the lineup Saturday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Bruins tweeted Iginla was "not a healthy scratch," but did not say whether the injury keeping him out of the lineup was the same lower-body injury that caused him to miss their game against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday.

Iginla returned to the lineup Thursday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After the 5-2 win which clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, Bruins coach Claude Julien said the injury affecting Iginla was very minor.

Iginla had not missed a game this season prior to Wednesday. In his first season with the Bruins, he has a team-leading 30 goals along with 61 points in 76 games. The 30-goal season is the 12th of his career.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
