The days of flashy goals and all the glory are behind 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr — and he knows it. The veteran player hasn’t scored once in the playoffs but has assisted on seven goals in 18 games. Despite not being the center of attention, Jagr has showcased his strong work ethic, putting in late-night skating sessions to work on his conditioning. Those extra hours seem to be paying off as the forward’s game improved as Game 2 progressed in Chicago. At the end of the day, Jagr said, he just wants to help the team. Hear more from the dedicated teammate in the video above.

Jaromir Jagr Says Favorite Player Growing Up Was Jaromir Jagr (Video)

Jaromir Jagr has been around the NHL long enough to be the childhood hero of some of his current teammates on the Boston Bruins. One of those teammates is fellow Czech David Krejci, who said he grew up idolizing the now 41-year-old Jagr during the CBC’s pregame show before Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.

After the near miss, Jagr — who hasn’t scored yet in the playoffs — let out his frustration with an angry yell to the sky. Check it out in the GIF below.

Jaromir Jagr's favorite player growing up was ... Jaromir Jagr

During CBC's player intros leading up to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, players were asked to name their favorite skater from when they were growing up.

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

Jaromir Jagr has done everything except score for the Bruins this postseason, and that’s OK. While the 41-year-old forward is still searching for his first goal of the playoffs, the Bruins have kept on giving him chances — because they keep winning. Now, in the final round of the postseason, Jagr is still leading the way even without breaking through. In Game 3, he helped the...

Bruins Lucky to Be Hanging Around Early Against Blackhawks While Chicago Lays Siege to Tuukka Rask (Video)

The Blackhawks wasted little time putting the pressure on the Bruins in Game 2, but the B’s are hanging around. Boston is probably lucky to only be trailing by one goal after a frantic first period, in which Tuukka Rask made more saves than Corey Crawford might have to all game. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is a little worried about the B’s, but he knows this could have gotten...

The Unsung Hereos

Brent Bailey 06/16/2013   The Year of the Unsung Hero               When it comes to sports during the playoffs, there will always be a player(s) that will step up in big moments.

Bruins take series lead with shutout

Tuukka Rask shut out the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals on Monday night and got enough help from the Bruins' offense to do it without another exhausting overtime. After playing four extra periods in the first two games, the Bruins made an early night of it with second-period goals by Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron to win 2-0 and take a 2-1 lead in...

Grand Theft Bruins. BRUINS WIN!

What a game. Again. The Bruins should've won Game 1 but blew it. They played like crap for the vast majority of Game 2 but Rask bailed them out. If the Bruins played all game like they did in OT there would not have been an OT. Rask literally stole a game. The Paille made us all explode.  We're too pumped to finish this intro. This series is killing us and we love it...

Lord Stanley Game Two

Just a few things that caught my eye: How many Hawks can a Bruin hit if a Bruin could hit Hawks? Answer? 50. Wow. Hit the ice tubs, boys. Jaromir Jagr and his anti-beard -- so close, yet so far, far away. Maybe the posts have fattened up over the duration of his career. What's your over-under on overtimes this series? Geez. Enough already. ...

SCF Winner - It May Come Down To Survival Skills

from Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times, Neither team wants you to feel sorry for it. In fact, both teams would prefer not to discuss it. Getting an NHL player to talk about his physical state is like getting a rogue state to talk about labor camps. Part of the code is to not complain about aches and pains, especially this time of year, when the rallying cry is to play...
