The Bruins have seen only marginal return on their trade-deadline move that added aging icon Jaromir Jagr to their forward mix. He’s obviously trying to contribute points and he remains Svengali-like at controlling and shielding the puck. But thus far, his diminished speed and limited scoring touch have left him on the very short side of the scoresheet (0-4—4 in 11 playoff games prior to Saturday’s Game 5 with the Rangers).
Numbers aside, Jagr remains a marvel when it comes to working at his craft, trying to stay fit, able, and relevant at age 41. Following last Sunday’s matinee win over the Blueshirts, he pulled on skates and donned weighted vest and ankle weights and took to the TD Garden ice for a solo skate around 7:30 p.m.
