Jagr skates just two shifts in 2nd period

by Dan Rosen

PHILADELPHIA -- Jaromir Jagr played only two shifts totaling 68 seconds in the second period after leaving the ice with a little more than three minutes to play in the first period.

The Flyers have yet to provide an update on Jagr's status.

Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette used a variety of players with Jagr's regular linemates in the second, Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell. Maxime Talbot, along with Hartnell, set up Giroux for the Flyers second goal, which gave them a 2-0 lead with 5:39 to play in the second period.

Jagr returned to the ice following the first intermission, leading many to believe he left with an equipment issue that hand to be handled in the dressing room. However, after playing only two shifts he never got back on the ice again, perhaps a sign that he is injured.

Jagr has played only 10 shifts totaling 7:09 of ice time through two periods. He has one shot on goal.
