From ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald:
When the puck drops on Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night at TD Garden, it will mark the 200th career playoff game for Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr.
The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer has played for six teams -- Pittsburgh, Washington, Philadelphia, Dallas and Boston -- during his NHL career and with the exception of the Stars (only played half of this season with Dallas), each of those teams have reached the postseason. Plus, he won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins.
“That’s pretty impressive,” said Bruins assistant captain Chris Kelly. “It shows, not only his regular-season numbers, it shows that he’s played consistently in the postseason -- a lot in the postseason. I don’t know where that ranks all-time but I’m sure it’s pretty high.”
Jagr will become the 19th player in NHL history to reach 200 career playoff games. Chris Chelios is the all-time leader with 266 with Montreal, Chicago and Detroit.
