Jaromir Jagr dazzles in Boston debut

By Allan Muir

Say this about Jaromir Jagr: He knows how to make a first impression.

For the second time this season, the Hall of Fame-bound winger debuted with a new club. And for the second time, he's provided all the offense his team needed.

Jagr's first as a Boston Bruin won't rank among the classics of his 680 (and counting) career tallies, as linemate Brade Marchand's pass into the slot bounced off his skate and through the legs of Martin Brodeur. But as Boston announcer Jack Edwards noted, "They don't ask how pretty, they just ask, 'How many?'" Thanks to a sterling performance from Tuukka Rask, it stood as the game winner as the Bruins skated off with a 1-0 win over the Devils.

"He did a lot of good things," coach Claude Julien said afterward. "He's going to the net, he goes right to the middle and he gets rewarded. If a guy that age can do it, the younger guys can, too. He's a good example to them."

Jagr was everything the Bruins hoped he would be tonight, but as good as he was in this one, it wasn't as spectacular as his debut with the Dallas Stars back in the season opener. Jagr scored twice in that one and added a pair of assists, in a 4-3 win over the Coyotes.
