The groin injury that caused Philadelphia Flyers
forward Jaromir Jagr
to miss most of the last two periods of Monday's 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic is a mild strain that will sideline him for 7-10 days, according to published reports.

Late in the first period, Jagr aggravated the injury he originally sustained on Dec. 29 in the Flyers' last game before the Winter Classic, against the Penguins. He skated only two more shifts, but was a virtual nonfactor, eventually missing the final 35 minutes.
"Last game I sprained my leg, it was a little bit (of) swelling," said Jagr, who ultimately went 10 shifts totaling 7:09. "Then, late in the first period it was getting worse and worse. I tried (to come) back, but I just couldn't skate 100 percent. I just thought, I cannot help my team."
Jagr is third on the Flyers in scoring this season with 12 goals and 31 points.
