Jaromir Jagr suffered a groin strain in last night's 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers and will be sidelined day-to-day. Jagr did not make the trip with the team to Philadelphia today and will not play in tomorrow's afternoon tilt vs. the Flyers at the Wachovia Center (3:00 PM ET, ABC / WFAN 660 AM).
"It wasn't right for the last few days," Jagr said after Thursday's game. "It was sore, but I was playing through it. I guess the muscles were tired on the second night of back-to-back games and it gave up in the third period."
Since joining the Rangers on January 23 in the deal that sent Anson Carter to the Washington Capitals, Jagr has skated in nine games and registered 10 points (four goals, six assists) with the Blueshirts.
In his last four matches, the 6-2, 234-pound right winger has recorded seven points (three goals, four assists). Jagr has posted 20 goals and 35 assists for 55 points in 55 games this season.
