Philadelphia Flyers right wing Jaromir Jagr said he plans to play next season. The 40-year-old Jagr said he was unsure where he would play but had no doubt he has another season in him. "I know I'm going to play. I don't know where I'm going to play, but it doesn't matter because I love the game," Jagr said. "I'm here right now and I just want to get ready for the playoffs. Whatever happens after happens." Jagr has 19 goals and 35 assists in 73 games with Philadelphia this season after spending the past three years playing in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League. He had an assist as the Flyers rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime in Game 1 of their playoff series Wednesday night.
