CALGARY–The Flames host the Detroit Red Wings tonight at the Saddledome. The Flames will try to rebound from Tuesday’s 5-3 to Vancouver. The good news from that game is Jaromir Jagr completed the game without aggravating the lower body injury that kept him out of six games.
Jagr did not get a point, but did play in his 1925th all time games, (including regular season and playoffs), surpassing Gordie Howe. The NHL released this graphic to commemorate the occasion.
