Jaromir Jagr Injury: Flyers Forward On Bench But Not Playing At Winter Classic

When Jaromir Jagr walked to the locker room -- or clubhouse, whatever -- at Citizens Bank Park during the first period of the Winter Classic, it seemed to just be an equipment issue. Maybe he needed a skate fix or something.

When the Flyers returned to the ice for the second period, Jagr followed his teammates out about a minute late, and only took a handful of shifts early in the period, he remained on the bench for most of the action as several other Flyers replaced him on the top line with Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell.

Jagr returned to the bench for the third period, but doesn't appear to be involved in the mix for the Flyers at all. The Flyers could use him, too, as they've fallen behind the New York Rangers, 3-2, in the third period.
