Flyers fans held their breath a bit last night when Jaromir Jagr left last night’s game in the first period with what was called a “lower body” injury. After all, when a guy at Jagr’s age plays less than two minutes and leaves with an injury, that’s rough.

According to sources close to’s Tim Panaccio, however, they find out that Jagr is dealing with a groin injury.

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is feeling upbeat about Jagr’s ailment, however.

“I just talked to Jaromir. He thinks within in a couple days he should be better. Hopefully, we get him back on Monday.”

Groin injuries are tricky because they can keep a guy on the shelf for a bit while it heals the right way and with all the power skating guys do these days, it’s easy to reignite an injury like that. They’ll need to be a bit more careful with Jagr though, at 39 years-old it doesn’t take much to tweak things again.

    It’s day to day.. Not sure why people over react to an injury just bc the guys’ 39… When he’s got an injury that causes him to miss a month or 2, then you can get nuts..
