Photo via Bruins.NHL.comScott LevesqueContent EditorWhen Boston traded for him on April 2nd the move was seen, by many, as an opportunity to help mentor the younger Bruins players - as the team made their playoff push.Who could blame the Bruins for that line of thought?With over 15 years of experience in the NHL, and a list of personal accolades as long as Interstate 95, the acquisition of Jaromir Jagr, from the Dallas Stars, was a transaction worth completing.Now, on the brink of winning his third Stanley Cup,  Jagr is embracing a different role - one that involves line cohesion, mentoring and dependability. Instead of filling the stat sheets, Jagr is supplying Boston's second line with a steady dose of hockey intangibles. Simply put, Jagr is doing everything you don't see in the box score.However, Jagr's still liable to return to his 1990's form and dominate a period, game, or by extension, Stanley Cup series on a moments notice - it's just hard to do when Lord...

Don’t Call Any of These Blue-Collar Bruins Superstars

Bruins head coach Claude Julien has a handful of stars on his roster, but these players, first and foremost, are teammates. They’re hockey players, nothing more and nothing less, and they come together to form a very successful team.

Bruins Lean on ‘Veteran Presents’ to Knock Chicago Back, Grab 2-1 Series Lead (Video)

Now, in the final round of the postseason, Jagr is still leading the way even without breaking through. In Game 3, he helped the...

Brad Marchand Accuses Andrew Shaw of Eye Gouging, Calls Blackhawks Winger a ‘Kitty Cat’

Putting Brad Marchand and Andrew Shaw on the ice at the same time creates a powder keg of agitation — one that finally blew up in the closing seconds of Game 3 on Monday. As Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell dropped the gloves in front of the Boston net, Marchand and Shaw did the same. The fights did not exactly follow “hockey code,” as a particularly...

Bruins’ ‘Average’ Showing Costs Them, Wakes Up Blackhawks As Series Heads Back to Chicago Tied

The B’s were “average” at best in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, which means it’s now a best-of-three series for the Stanley Cup.
