Flyers’ Jagr prepares quietly for playoff round against Penguins
From ROB ROSSI, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Even at 40, his dominant days of hockey admittedly behind him, Jaromir Jagr can still make a move that will leave everybody shaking their heads in disbelief.
He did it again Monday, declining to speak after his Philadelphia Flyers’ first practice for a Stanley Cup first-round playoff showdown with the Penguins.
One of the first Flyers players in the dressing room at their practice facility, he disappeared quickly — even before teammates could compliment him for all the good he has done for them this season.
Surely Max Talbot, like Jagr a once heroic Penguin, could not have predicted that, not after detailing how Jagr “came here since Day 1 and had a huge smile on his face.”
There were no smiles from Jagr on Monday.
