Jagr has already missed games two separate times this season because of the injury. After the game, he said the ice conditions Saturday were “awful, so bad,” but that he wasn’t sure exactly when or how he aggravated the groin.

“It’s tough to say. There wasn’t any … it’s tough to explain it,” he said. “When it’s bad ice, soft ice, I have sharp skates, the edges won’t let you slide at all. It’s so much on the groin, on the legs.”

Jagr returned quickly from previous bouts with the groin injury. He missed two games in mid-November, then attempted a comeback before missing two more. He sat out another two games in early January because of the groin.

Now, he knows he’s going to have to take his time in order to not stress the injury further.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Jagr said. “But at least if I make it to the All-Star Game, I can make it strong. When we come back, we play every other day.”
“It’s not that bad,” he said. “Tomorrow, [maybe] it's not going to hurt tomorrow. But I just want to make sure it doesn’t happen anymore. I want to make sure everything else is strong.”

Zac Rinaldo was also injured at some point on Saturday. According to Holmgren, Rinaldo is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, though Rinaldo declined to speak to reporters after the game.

Along with Danny Briere’s concussion (see story), the potential absence of three players from tomorrow’s game against Boston means the Flyers will have to call in some reinforcements from Glens Falls.

According to a source, Tom Sestito and Ben Holmstrom will be recalled from the Adirondack Phantoms to fill the lineup vacancies.

In order to call up Holmstrom and Sesito, the Flyers will have to place two players on injured reserve.
