As if losing a two-goal lead in Monday’s Winter Classic wasn’t enough, the Philadelphia Flyers also lost one of their top scorers for at least the near future.
On Tuesday afternoon, general manager Paul Holmgren announced that Jaromir Jagr will be out 7-10 days with a groin strain. Jagr appeared to aggravate the injury during the second period of Monday’s game when he aggressively drove to the New York goal.
With Jagr out, several scenarios begin to surface. Not only will the team need to fill the opening left by the star forward on the top line, but it also opens up the opportunity for other players to earn some extra ice time with elevated play.
The Coyotes held on after scoring two quick goals in the first period and seeing two quick ones scored on them to edge the Leafs in a shootout on Tuesday, 3-2.
They have now entered into Bryzpalooza.
With all the focus surrounding the former Coyotes' goaltender that famously left the desert in favour of signing a deal that would bring him 10 million dollars this season, their current man between the pipes continues to pick up wins. Mike Smith improved his record to 7-0-2 in his last nine starts and now faces the highest-scoring team in the league.

It didn’t take Claude Giroux long to torment the Carolina Hurricanes.
Just 1:19 into Monday night’s game in Raleigh, Giroux scored on a breakaway to give the Philadelphia Flyers (10-4-3) a 1-0 lead. The breakaway started with a brilliant pass from Jaromir Jagr during a Hurricanes (6-9-3) line change.
Tonight the Flyers will head north to face the 1-4 Ottawa Senators and could be the game Sergei Bobrovsky sees his first action of the year. See all the action at 7:30 pm EST on CSN Philadelphia and SNET-E, TVA in Canada.
A case can be made for why this year’s rookie camp and training camp are more important than they have been in previous years for the Philadelphia Flyers. It may seem like common sense to many, but there are several key things that go into the significance of this year.
Rookie camp got under way for the Orange and Black this week and a game against the Washington Capitals is scheduled for tomorrow night. Unless your team is participating in a tournament such as the one in Traverse City, rookie camp is fun to get into. But for Flyers fans, it's not usually as exciting. Luckily for a few thousand fans, there is that one Flyers rookie game.
Once the wrecking ball completed the journey through the Flyers roster following last season, there was no doubt apprehension would follow. And it has. The Flyers fan base has seen an interesting and at times, tumultuous offseason. The captain’s gone, his sidekick is in Columbus and the season’s around the corner.
The really tricky thing about Philadelphia’s offseason is that they really only added one known quantity to the roster. When an exodus the magnitude of the one that general manager Paul Holmgren put into action occurs, usually the return soothes the hearts and souls of the fans. Aside from forward Maxime Talbot, the new players in orange and ...
