Jaromir Jagr admitted on Wednesday that the three years he spent in Washington weren't the best of his career.
"The part I was playing there I would rather forget. I wasn't very good," Jagr said on Wednesday, one day before his Philadelphia Flyers (4-0-1) host the undefeated Washington Capitals (5-0-0).
Jagr led the NHL in scoring for four straight years when he signed a five-year, $55 million deal with the Capitals in 2001. After amassing 121 points in his last season with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jagr collected just 79 in his first campaign with Washington.
The 39-year-old Jagr will look to upend the Capitals, who boast a 6-0-3 mark against the Flyers. Philadelphia hasn't defeated Washington in regulation since a 4-2 road triumph on Feb. 24, 2009.
