Philadelphia Flyers v Winnipeg Jets

Jaromir Jagr is banged up … again


Jaromir Jagr’s stay in Philadelphia has been about as splendid as any reasonable person could expect. Unfortunately, he’s “fitting in” with his Flyers teammates by regularly showing up in injury reports.

The latest ailment appears to be a hip injury, which the team describes as a day-to-day issue.

Little day-to-day tweaks have been a pain for Jagr and the Flyers this season. A nagging groin injury was the primary cause of his woes, but the bottom line is that he already missed nine contests with smaller problems. It makes you wonder if the team might give some pause to re-signing the 40-year-old veteran, especially if Jagr demands a two-year deal.

In other Flyers injury news, the team reports that Jakub Voracek received stitches to his “upper and lower mouth area” and much like Jagr, he’ll be re-evaluated on Wednesday. It’s tough not to think “concussion” when you watch that mind-blowing hit via the freight train known as Niklas Kronwall, but we’ll need to wait and see.

On the bright side, the Flyers managed to hang on and beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on the night that they retired Mark Howe’s No. 2 jersey.

Brandon Dubinsky might regret fighting tonight

New York Rangers v Boston Bruins

The pressure’s been on for New York Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky to turn his season around, but perhaps he took the wrong course to make a big impact tonight. Dubinsky hurt his hand in tonight’s game against the New Jersey Devils and won’t return, according to Steve Zipay.

ESPN’s Katie Strang points out that Dubinsky hasn’t been in action since he dropped the gloves with Ryan Carter. It’s pretty easy to put two and two together on that one, wouldn’t you say?

Here’s the scuffle in question, via Hockey Fights:

Hope it was worth it …

Joffrey Lupul among wounded in Bruins-Leafs clash

Toronto Maple Leafs v Montreal Canadiens

The Boston Bruins-Toronto Maple Leafs game already carried potential for serious damage, but that mostly seemed in the form of the Buds’ playoff hopes. Instead, it’s been a more direct, literal way, as the game already provided a significant amount of bumps and bruises.

Obviously, losing Lupul would be far-and-away the biggest deal. (Losing Lupul would be about the only thing worse than dropping the game, I’d imagine.)

Then again, it would totally take care of that “awkwardness with Randy Carlyle” angle for a bit, right? Silver linings.


The Bruins’ injury updates are related to previous incidents instead of tonight’s events, however. Fluto Shinzawa reports that a) Nathan Horton hasn’t resumed skating and b) Tuukka Rask’s injury will likely keep him out closer to six weeks than four. Ouch.
