Jagr will tie Scott Stevens with 1635 career games played with his next appearance, expected to be Tuesday night in Pittsburgh when the Panthers play the Penguins at PPG Paints Arena (formerly Consol Energy Center–same building, new name). The Panthers will also visit Toronto (Oct. 27), Buffalo (Oct. 29) and Detroit (Oct. 30) on their first lengthy road trip of the season. The Panthers hit the road with a 3-1-1 record for 7 points, and trail Montreal (4-0-1-9) , Tampa Bay 4-1-0-8) and Detroit (4-2-0-8) in the Atlantic Divsion.

Jagr skating helmetless, one of the few players to do so, before the Panthers win over Colorado.
That’s why hockey people call it flow.

@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.
