Jagr nets 695th goal in Devils’ 4-1 win over Habs
Question of the Day
“It might be my last one, but it might not either,” he said. “I just want to play well when I play.
“It doesn’t matter what situation I’m in. I’m there to win hockey games and that’s it. I’ll do that as long as they let me do it.”
Jagr, who was chosen to play for the Czech Republic at the Sochi Olympics next month, was even more adamant about continuing his career.
“I’ve said many times, I’m not thinking about retiring yet,” he said. “I’m not counting my games yet, as long as I have fun.”
Goals early in the second frame from youngsters Eric Gelinas and Adam Henrique were the difference. Dainius Zubrus scored into an empty net, with an assist from Jagr, in the final minute.
“Our team, we’re kind of goal challenged, so it’s hard to give up the first goal,” he said. “I haven’t played in a while and I thought ‘This is not good.’ But I picked it up after that a little bit and we played a really solid hockey game.”
Montreal was coming off one of its best games of the season in a 2-1 win over Chicago, but could not duplicate that effort. The Canadiens went 0 for 3 with the man advantage, a fifth-straight game with no power-play goals.
Gelinas scored from the point on a power play 1:20 into the second period and Henrique got his sixth goal in the last 10 games from a scramble in the Montreal crease at 4:02.
The crowd of 21,273 at the Bell Centre booed late in the second period when what appeared to be a Brendan Gallagher goal was disallowed by video review for inadvertently kicking the puck.
NOTES: David Desharnais sat out with a flu and his spot on Montreal’s top line was taken by Lars Eller. Francis Bouillon moved in as a seventh defenseman. … Ryane Clowe picked up two assists and has seven points in his last five games. … It was the third and last meeting of the season between the teams. Montreal won the series 2-1-0.
