8 a.m.: The smoke has cleared with the NHL trade deadline has passed, and now it’s time for the push to the playoffs. The Bruins will continue their push for the postseason on Thursday against the New Jersey Devils. In doing so, the Black and Gold are expected to slot a future Hall of Famer into the lineup. Jaromir Jagr, who was acquired Tuesday by the B’s, is expected to make his debut with the Bruins on Thursday against New Jersey. Once Jagr hits the ice in his Boston sweater, it will be his sixth stop in an NHL career that will eventually end in Toronto. Jagr might not be alone in making his debut with the B’s. Kaspars Daugavins, who was claimed off of waivers last week by Boston, may also make his debut with the Bruins. Peter Chiarelli confirmed Wednesday that it’s likely Daugavins will be in there. The Bruins will be without one of their best players, though. Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday’s win over the Senators and did not return. Chiarelli announced Wednesday that Bergeron had suffered another concussion. The two-way forward, arguably the most important player on the Bruins roster, is out indefinitely. This is the second of three meetings this season between the Bruins and the Devils. The B’s beat New Jersey 2-1 in a shootout back on Jan. 29. Puck drop from the Garden is scheduled for 7 p.m.
