That might cause some hemming and hawing in some circles, but functionally it’s an injury that would inhibit his skating in one way or another. If that 7-10 day window is accurate, then Jagr could miss this range of games:
Thursday, Jan. 5: home vs. Chicago
Saturday, Jan. 7: home vs. Ottawa
Sunday, Jan. 8: away vs. Ottawa
Tuesday, Jan. 10: away vs. Carolina
Thursday, Jan. 12: away vs. Islanders
Obviously, rehabbing injuries is an inexact science, so he could miss more or less than four to five games. Either way, it’s a workable situation for the Flyers as they’ve already played four contests without Jagr this season.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
