Jaromir Jagr’s Extra Work Paying Off, Says He Went ‘Top Shelf’ on Tuukka Rask in Czech Republic (Video)


The days of flashy goals and all the glory are behind 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr — and he knows it. The veteran player hasn’t scored once in the playoffs but has assisted on seven goals in 18 games.

Those extra hours seem to be paying off as the forward’s game improved as Game 2 progressed in Chicago. At the end of the day, Jagr said, he just wants to help the team.
