Bruins' Iginla out vs. Flyers, 'not a healthy scratch' @NHL

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.
