According to Yahoo! Sports, Jarome Iginla's dislocated finger did not bother him Tuesday night as he notched two assists in a 2-0 Boston Bruin victory over Calgary.

Iginla set up Bruins' captain Zdeno Chara twice as the Bruins improved to 23-9-2. The Flames meanwhile fell to 13-16-5 and are 12 points back of the Minnesota Wild for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Iginla was playing his first game in Boston against the Flames, the franchise he starred for from 1995-2013. Iginla was actually questionable for the game because he hurt his finger while fighting Ryan Kesler of the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. The image of Iginla's finger was grotesque according to Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Bruins also got a great performance from Tuukka Rask who made 21 saves for a shutout.

The Flames continue their five game road trip Thursday evening in Detroit.
