WASHINGTON -- Florida Panthers right wing Jaromir Jagr left their 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center on Saturday because of a sore groin.

"He had a little bit of a cramp in his groin and he was just a little bit too sore to come back," Gallant said. "He's basically day to day. I don't think it's serious, but he was too sore to come back."

Jagr sat out the final 3:59 of the first period but returned after the intermission to warm up before the second. After taking a few laps, Jagr headed off the ice and went back to the locker room.

The Panthers were already without center Nick Bjugstad (broken hand), left wing Jonathan Huberdeau (Achilles tendon) and left wing Jussi Jokinen (lower body).

Jagr led the Panthers with 66 points last season, Jokinen was second with 60 points, and Huberdeau tied for third with 59. Bjugstad ranked eighth with 34 points.

Jagr has one goal and four assists in 12 games this season.
