GAME 3: @NYIslanders 4-@FLAPanthers 3 (OT)

BROOKLYN–Thomas Hickey scored in overtime to give the New York Islanders a 4-3 victory in game 3 against the Florida Panthers Sunday night at Barclays Center. In all 78 shots were fired on goal by both teams as end to end action was the order of the day and both teams were willing to comply.

In the immediate aftermath of an OT loss, Jaromir Jagr kind of summed up the whole experience in this shot from NHL.com

The Panthers top line of Jonathon Huberdeau, Aleksander Barkov and Jagr finally hit the scoreboard with Barkov’s first career playoff goal. Barkov and Jagr lost potential assists when Aaron Ekblad’s apparerent goal was overturned by the new blue line cameras which showed Huberdeau’s left skate barely beating the puck across the blue line as he tried to kick it into the Islanders zone. The trio has launched 46 shots in three games but only has one goal to show for it.

So, once again, no updates to the Jagr-O-Meter.

Jagr has not scored in the first three playoff games of this series but as the team’s leading point producer in the season, he was very consistent. Twice he had four game stretches without points in the 82-game season. The Islanders are a fast and young team and playing with a slightly harder edge than the Islanders. Jagr did not get tired since the end of the regular season.

Game 4 is Wednesday at the Barclays Center. The Panthers will host Game 5 Friday at the BB&T Center. Tickets for that game can be secured at panthers.nhl.com.

The legend continues…

Some Jagr-related  social media accounts:

@68Jagr  This is the real site,  the one and only official Jaromir Jagr twitter account. Postings are rare, but worth the wait. Jagr has been more active on Twitter this season.

The two best Jagr facebook pages are:

https://www.facebook.com/68Jagr/?fref=ts

 This is the page Jagr posts on, if he is going to post at all.

Another good facebook page is one produced by someone in the Czech Republic. It has more than 100,000 likes. This is not the official page, but it is very good.

@rytiriKladno The Kladno Hockey Club: Before coming to the NHL Jagr played for this team in the Czech league as a teenager. Now he owns the team. It’s in Czech  but some devices can translate to English.  Follow them at:

@68isgr8  is the twitter for The Traveling Jagrs. Clad in different Jagr jerseys and hair styles from 68’s career, they gained league-wide recognition when they caught Jagr’s attention during a pre-game skate of a Dallas Stars game in Canada during the 2012-2013 season. Since then, they convene at games in Western Canada and make a road trip or two every year, playing street hockey with locals, posing for hundreds of pictures, and having a good time with fans while honoring an all-time NHL legend.
