On Saturday night, Bruins forward Jarome Iginla suffered a pretty nasty injury during a fight, but in true NHL fashion, he finished out the rest of the game. The Bs visited the Vancouver Canucks for the first time since winning Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals there in 2011, and even though Iginla wasn’t a member of that Bruins team, he still had some beef from his Calgary Flames days with Canucks forward Ryan Kesler.
