NHL News: Philadelphia Flyers Get Jagr and Coburn Back

Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Flyers skate with the mighty and powerful New York Islanders. And they’ll be getting some much needed help as they try to slay the behemoth.

Coming back to the lineup are winger Jaromir Jagr (groin) and defensman Braydon Coburn (bruised kidney).

I’m glad I’m back, that’s the important thing,” Jagr said. “Hopefully, my legs are gonna be good. That’s the main thing to me.”

It will be good for them to have Jagr back out there with their dynamo Claude Giroux. He’s played very well on that line even though he’s cooled a little bit in the last few games.

Coburn is a much-needed addition to a defense that’s gotten pretty sloppy in front of Bryzgalov and Bob at times.
