Jaromir Jagr's calf injury leaps to groin, out 7-10 days

Paul Holmgren announced today that Jaromir Jagr will miss seven-to-10 days with a groin strain. He has a history of groin problems and missed a few games earlier this season with a similar ailment, but it's odd considering he told us after the Winter Classic yesterday that he left the game with calf discomfort.

The calf and the groin are not the same thing.

In any event, missing seven-to-10 puts him out until next Tuesday at the earliest, next Friday at the latest. The Flyers play in Carolina on Tuesday, at the Islanders the following Thursday and at Nashville the following Saturday.

We'll see what this means in terms of the roster shakeup. A few different players filled in for Jagr on the top line at times yesterday against the Rangers -- James van Riemsdyk and Jakub Voracek among them. It'll likely get Zac Rinaldo back into the lineup on the fourth line, too.
