Jagr, 43, practiced Monday and said he felt well enough to return to the lineup after missing the previous two games because of a lower-body injury. Jagr last played Oct. 27 against the Colorado Avalanche but said the injury could go back to Oct. 13, when he strained a hip flexor against the Carolina Hurricanes.
"Something was wrong and it shot down my right side, the hamstring, my back, my core," Jagr said. "They just didn't work together. I knew it, but didn't have time to fix it.
"The hip flexor; that's where it started. Then it just got worse and worse."
