An injury to center Patrice Bergeron forced Bruins coach Claude Julien to shake up his highly productive second line Thursday night. Luckily for the B’s, that unit was able to retain its explosiveness even with the team’s best overall forward on the bench.
Tyler Seguin shifted back to his natural position to take Bergeron’s spot in the middle, and newcomer Jaromir Jagr stepped in on the wing and quickly made his presence felt. The future Hall of Famer showed no hesitation in flying toward the net, and it paid off in the form of his first goal as a Bruin — the only offense needed in a 1-0 win over New Jersey.
Julien joined Naoko Funayama postgame to discuss the line shakeup, Jagr’s debut and more from the victory. Check out the full interview in the video above.

BOSTON — Jaromir Jagr is no stranger to being showered with praise. He’s found success everywhere he’s been, and the fans of those teams have let him know about it.
He is, after all, a future Hall of Famer.
So you could understand why there was so much anticipation in Boston on Thursday for his debut with the Bruins. A walk through North Station an hour before the game produced...
Jaromir Jagr is no stranger to joining new teams, as his debut with the Bruins on Thursday night will mark the sixth team in his Hall of Fame career. However, that doesn’t mean the forward is used to changing teams.
Jagr got his first taste of his new team on Thursday morning when he hit the ice for morning skate in advance of his first game in Black and Gold on Thursday night...
Jaromir Jagr is set to make his Bruins debut Thursday night, and he will do so against a New Jersey Devils team that will be in desperate need of a win. Problem is, quite a bit is on the line for the B’s at the same time.
The Devils have lost three overtime games in a row entering this matchup, and are clinging to the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoff picture...
Patrice Bergeron suffered what appeared to be a head injury Tuesday night
Sometimes not knowing is better than knowing.
Case in point; last night, distracted by other things going on in my life, I was unable to watch the Boston Bruins game until a mid-way point on the second period. I turned the game on, settled in and grabbed a beer before trying to get updates on the game up to...
Jaromir Jagr is 41 years old, but didn’t look it at the TD Garden. Tuukka Rask isn’t quite as old, but made just one fewer save than Jagr has years while recording a shutout victory.
The B’s newest addition looked right at home alongside Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand, scoring in the second period and celebrating not with his trademark salute, but instead with a more important...
Jagr celebrates withline-mates after scoring
The Bruins continued their early April success to the tune of 1-0 shutout over the 8th place New Jersey Devils. Jaromir Jagr scored the only goal for the Bruins off a skate tip from a Brad Marchand pass, and Tuukka Rask finished with 40 saves, making a number of huge ones to keep the game in check.
The game had a lot of hype leading...
Jesus Christ I think I have a huge boner right now.
And now with that, I feel like I should tell the people to temper their expectations for tonight's game. I've seen some people saying Jagr is scoring a hat trick tonight and then is going to pull out a missile and blow up the CEC and then restore faith in North Korea, so let's take it one game at a...
The Bruins are coming off of a 3-2 win against the Ottawa Senators and now, after the trade deadline on Wednesday, look forward to the rest of the season. The Bruins start by facing last years Eastern Conference Champions the New Jersey Devils.
The Devils are 15-12-9 this season and are tied for second in the North East with 39 points. The Devils made a move for the 38 year old...

Obviously the big aquisiton for the Bruins was Jaromir Jagr, but we all knew Chiarelli wasn't done. The defense this year hadn't been spectacular and Chiarelli said he wanted to add a defenseman to the mix. A lot of fans wanted someone like Yandle or Ryan or Boyle -- either the NHL unicorn (PMD) to help on the power play or a shut down defenseman to help what's...
The Bruins and Senators combined to take 97 shots Tuesday night — the most in a single game by any two NHL teams all season.
That massive shot total coupled with the loss of Patrice Bergeron, Boston’s best two-way forward, to injury in the second period seemed to set the stage for a wild shootout of a game at TD Garden. But thanks to strong play by both goaltenders — B’s...
Tyler Seguin is sliding back to center and he’ll be doing so with one of the greatest wingers ever flanking him.
With center Patrice Bergeron out with a concussion, head coach Claude Julien is moving Seguin to center — a position he played all his life before joining the Bruins, according to The Boston Globe. Seguin will be skating with recently acquired Jaromir Jagr on his wing...
