With the Bruins just getting under way against the Canadiens, a development on the other side of the continent had B’s fans thinking that something could be up.
That’s because the Calgary Flames scratched forward Jarome Iginla prior to their game with the Colorado Avalanche in Calgary. It is the first game Iginla has missed since the 2006-07 season. The Flames’ captain has been the subject of trade rumors, and that buzz only intensified as the news of his healthy scratch making its way around the hockey world.
According to reports, the Bruins are in hot pursuit of Iginla.
