Time is ticking: Enjoy Jaromir Jagr while you can

As the puck went through the net with 44 seconds left in overtime, Jaromir Jagr's right glove came off for his patented salute. It's been his trademark since his current teammates were skating around peewee hockey rinks.‬

The old man at the end of his career helped point out the unifying factor among every individual in the NHL.

While there are discrepancies in pay grade, talent level and strategic philosophy, the bond that every player shares is the fact that some day, inevitably, the game will come to pass them by.

For some, that day will come sooner than it will for others.

In the case of Philadelphia Flyers 40-year old forward, that day is just over the horizon.

Simmonds, Jagr Help Flyers Find A Way to Overcome

Jaromir Jagr has finally found the scoring touch.

Riding off the momentum a two-goal game against the Penguins on Saturday, Jagr found the back of the net in overtime to cap off a come-from-behind win against the Winnipeg Jets, 5-4. The win prevented a series sweep from the Jets for the season.

Jagr's opportunistic goal wouldn't have come if it weren't for the timeliest of Wayne Simmonds' 22 goals this season. With goalie Ilya Bryzgalov pulled, James van Riemsdyk set up Simmonds with a pass pass in front of the net that number 17 tapped through Ondrej Pavelic's legs to tie the game, 4-4, with under 10 seconds left in the game.

It has been two different types of February for the Flyers heroes on Tuesday.

Flyers' Big Three Are Back, Just In Time

The Flyers’ top line looks like its old self again.

After a stagnant few games where Scott Hartnell, Claude Giroux, and Jaromir Jagr were barely noticeable on the ice, they’ve bounced back.

In their last five games, the three have combined for 16 points.

Unfortunately, the Flyers have only won two of their last five games, despite the production from their top line.

Shootout Struggles Continue For Flyers As They Face The Red Hot Predators

Splitting the decision in their last two games in over time shootouts, the Philadelphia Flyers (29-14-6) will look for a better outcome in tonight's matchup against theNashville Predators (31-16-4).

It is well known that the Flyers struggle when it comes to the shootout. It has been that way ever since the league decided to implement this circus act to avoid ties in the 2005-2006 season.

Jagr's Return Shining Moment in Snoozefest

The majority of Tuesday night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Winnipeg Jets was ugly.

After the two teams generated 27 combined goals in their first two meetings, the game had the promise of another offensive shootout.

Instead, it resulted in the other kind of shootout, one that came after 65-minutes of uninspired hockey.

With each team struggling to generate any kind of enthusiasm for the first game back from the All-Star break, fans were witnesses to a less than memorable matchup.

However, there was one player who looked more than ready to get back to action.

After re-aggravating a groin injury against the New Jersey Devils last week, Jaromir Jagr returned to the lineup for the first time in ten days.

Flyers fall to Jets, 2-1 in shootout

In the first two meetings between the Winnipeg Jets and Philadelphia Flyers, the two teams erupted for a combined total of 27 goals.

Both games were full of non-stop offense and up-tempo play.

The same couldn’t be said of their meeting on Tuesday night.

After 65 minutes of less than stellar hockey, the Jets managed a 2-1 win after Bryan Little scored the only goal of a three-round shootout.

Jets Grab Extra Point In Philly With Shootout Win

The Winnipeg Jets and Philadelphia Flyers met for the third time this season on Tuesday night and Bryan Little would be the deciding shooter in the shoot-out to give the Jets the extra point in a tight Eastern Conference match up.

Resilient Flyers Begin Second Half

Fresh off the All-Star break, the Philadelphia Flyers (29-14-5) are set to face the Winnipeg Jets (22-22-6) tonight at the Wells Fargo Center.

After surviving the months of December and January on the road (20 of 29), the Flyers are entering a stretch that will see them play eight of their next ten games at home.

The Flyers cannot afford a slow start to the second half of the season

Voracek has room to improve

Jakub Voracek is a big guy.

Standing at 6’2”, 214 lbs., he is one of the biggest players on the Philadelphia Flyers.

With the exception of Jaromir Jagr, Voracek probably has the most skill considering his size and much like Jagr, Voracek has proven that he is a difficult matchup.

In a general sense, Voracek has been a wonderful addition to the team.

However, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have things he can work on.

Briere, Jagr and Rinaldo Injured against Devils

The injury bug continues to plague the Philadelphia Flyers.

Following their 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, it was reported by several sources that Daniel Briere, Jaromir Jagr and Zac Rinaldo have all sustain injuries ranging in severity.

Matt Brigidi fills you in on the latest.
