Panthers forward Jagr to play against Red Wings

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr will be in the lineup against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday (2 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, SN, FS-F, FS-D).

Jagr left the Panthers' game Friday against the New York Islanders at 8:39 of the third period and did not return. He practiced Saturday, and Gallant said then he expected Jagr to play Sunday.

Jagr, 43, has one goal and four assists during a five-game point streak, and he leads the Panthers with eight goals and 18 points. His 730 career goals are one behind Marcel Dionne for fourth all-time.

Defenseman Dmitry Kulikov practiced Saturday and is with the Panthers in Detroit but won't play. Kulikov has been sidelined since mid-November because of a lower-body injury expected to keep him out 2-4 weeks.

On Saturday the Panthers recalled defenseman Dylan Olsen from Portland of the American Hockey League.
