Found April 24, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
PLAYERS: Jaromir Jagr
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
You may have seen pictures of the Traveling Jagrs, a group of Jaromir Jagr superfans who dress in mullets while donning each of Jaromir Jagr’s pro team jerseys and travel around the league supporting the Czech forward. Yesterday, the group welcomed a new member in Philadelphia…Bruins Jagr. The newest member was sworn into the legion and handed his own mullet after being prompted with the first rule of the Traveling Jagrs: “You don’t root for Boston. You don’t root for Philly. You root for Jagr.”   [h/t Days of Y'Orr]

Jaromir Jagr Fans in Philadelphia Sport Mullets, Jerseys From Entire Career (Photo)

Jaromir Jagr has been around the NHL for 19 seasons now, and over that time he’s become a pretty popular figure in the game. But more than that, Jagr’s gotten attention for not only his hockey skills and demeanor, but that sweet mullet from earlier in his career, too. On Tuesday the Bruins were down in Philadelphia, and it seems the hockey faithful in Pennsylvania still appreciate...

Jaromir Jagr’s Record-Tying Game-Winning Goal Against Panthers Is Captain Morgan Legendary Moment (Video)

Jaromir Jagr‘s career has long since passed into “legendary” territory, but the veteran added one more notch to his belt this past weekend. With his goal against the Florida Panthers on Sunday, Jagr tied Phil Esposito in the record books as the all-time leader in game-winning goals — and any time that name is uttered around Boston, people take notice. Jagr’s record-tying...

Milan Lucic Returns to Form With Fight, Physical Play Against Lightning (Video)

Bruins fans worried about Milan Lucic didn’t have much reason for concern after the forward’s play on Thursday night in Boston. While Lucic did not score, his impact was felt in ways beyond the box score, as he returned to his old physical ways and even was involved in a fight with the Lightning’s Keith Aulie. It was a clear display that Lucic hasn’t lost his edge this...

Claude Julien’s Critical Comments Show Quick Reverse in Course As Bruins’ Struggles Continue

The Bruins look like they’re in trouble right now, and Boston head coach Claude Julien looks to be giving one last-ditch effort to fire up his struggling club. The B’s lost 5-2 Tuesday night in Philadelphia in an ugly showing in which the club was sloppy in just about every facet of the game. The Bruins should have been able to take advantage of a Flyers team that had little...

Milan Lucic Shows Signs of Life While Kick-Starting Bruins’ Return to Physical Style of Hockey

BOSTON — The Bruins, when they’re going well, play a simple, physical style of hockey. This is no secret. The same could be said for B’s power forward Milan Lucic. So one could certainly draw a correlation between Lucic’s lackluster play of late and the Bruins’ struggles, which have been on and off for almost two months now. While not every problem was solved and Lucic...

Grindin' Gears: Where We Find A Black And Gold Turd In The Punchbowl

  This Bruins team had a hot start when the season started and carried it throughout February. Suddenly the calendar turned and everyone talked about how March was going to be a meat grinder. 17 games in 31 days (before snow storms, etc) and it would prove if this team was a contender or a pretender. Now we're at the end of the regular season and this team is still fighting...

Bruins Fans Anxiously Waiting to Find Out Who Team’s First-Round Playoff Opponent Will Be (Video)

The Bruins are headed to the postseason, but who they meet there is anybody’s guess at the moment. With teams still scrambling for the final few tickets to the playoff dance, not to mention the Bruins and Canadiens (and maybe even the Maple Leafs) fighting for the Northeast division, the final postseason picture is a big jumble heading into the final few games. NESN Nation’s...

Bruins Struggles Continue in Philly

  As has become a strange trend over the course of the last week, the Bruins were treated to yet another heartwarming tribute to the victims and armed forces in light of the Boston Marathon bombings last week, and then went out and essentially laid an egg on the ice of the Wells Fargo Center.  With playoff hockey looming, the Boston Bruins have been on a slow nosedive in the wrong...

Bruins 2, Lightning 0

Tuukka Rask stopped 30 shots for his second shutout in as many starts and Boston beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 Thursday night, keeping the Bruins in control of the tight race for the Northeast Division title. The Bruins and Canadiens are tied with 61 points, but Boston has two games remaining while Montreal has only one. The Canadiens finish their season at Toronto on Saturday...

Flyers 5, Bruins 2

Call it a win for the Flyers and Boston charities. Make it one blown opportunity for the Bruins to stand alone atop the Northeast Division. Matt Read and Oliver Lauridsen scored 7 seconds apart to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night. The Bruins are second in the Eastern Conference and lead the division. But the Bruins and Montreal...

Lightning-Bruins Preview

The Boston Bruins have floundered down the stretch as they head into their sixth straight postseason appearance, with many of their missteps coming against teams out of playoff contention. They'll try to clean up their sloppy play against another opponent well behind them in the standings Thursday night as they host the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Bruins (27-13-5) sit second in...

Bruins Shutout Lighting 2-0

For the first time in a while the Boston Bruins played a very solid game defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0. It was only the Lightning, but based on the Bruins recent play, a solid win is nothing to scoff at. The Bruins saw goals from the German hammer Dennis Siedenberg and from the true 7th man Daniel Paille. Yes, the 7th man award was awarded, and went to Dougie Hamilton. Diehards...

Keys To The Game Vs Lightning

The Bruins are coming off of another dissapointing loss in the shortened season. With the playoffs looming and only three games left the Bruins don't look so hot. Tonight the Bruins play the Tampa Bay Lightning and look to try to steady the ship before the NHL playoffs. The Boston Bruins have clinched a playoff spot and the Tampa Bay Lightning are well out of the playoffs...
