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.
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.
I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
