No points on this winning night for Jaromir Jagr but he managed three shots on goal and was skating strong again. About a decade ago, Jagr played for the Rangers. Before Sunday’s game Rangers play by play man Sam Rosen was honored for his recent induction into the broadcasters wing of the NHL Hall of Fame. Jagr kept Rosen busy when he set New York records for the most goals and points in a season. Rosen and other well known NHL voices can be heard in this fan produced video from youtube.
NHL.com published an article about Jagr’s willingness to adapt as a reason he continues to play at an age when most players have retired 10 years earlier.
