According to Kevin Paul Dupont of Boston.com, Jagr limped off the ice at the nine-minute mark in the first period.

Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston reported that Jagr was taken back to the locker room soon after the injury.

The Bruins were up 1-0 when Jagr was forced out of the game. He had registered just over three minutes of time on the ice.
The 41-year-old's injury comes at the worst of times for Boston. Down 3-2 in the Stanley Cup finals, the Bruins are faced with elimination in Game 6.
Jagr has been a key addition for the Bruins this season. He has averaged just over 18 minutes of ice time per game throughout the postseason with 10 assists in 21 games played.
Jagr not only adds extra scoring punch to the Bruins attack, but he also brings championship experience. He was a Stanley Cup champion with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and 1992. With his appearance in this year's Stanley Cup finals, he is the only player in history to play on the grand stage as a teenager and again after turning 40 years old.
