NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr, who left the Winter Classic with a leg injury on Monday, has a mild left groin strain, and will miss seven to 10 days.

Jagr, 39, is in his first season with Philadelphia after three in Russia, and was one of this summer's marquee free agents. The former Penguin, Capital and Ranger played only a minute of the second period at Citizens Bank Park in the Flyers' 3-2 loss to the Rangers. He was replaced on Philadelphia's top line by James van Riemsdyk.

Jagr has 12 goals, 31 points and is a plus-12 for the Flyers, who now trail the first-place Rangers by four points in the Atlantic Division. Philadelphia plays host to Chicago on Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center.
