from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
It is up to Jagr to shoulder the burden over the final 34 games and the Rangers in the middle of a seven-team pack hunting for the last two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. And No. 68 understands that.
“I’m not going to talk about what the team should do; I have to be the first guy to do it,” said Jagr, who chose his words very carefully so as not to appear egotistical. “I’m not saying that I am the team, but if I play good, the team will play good.
“I understand that it’s a team game, but when the game is on the line, individuals have to make the difference. That’s what I truly believe.
“If you want to be a special guy, you have to have special moments. That’s what I play for. That’s what I live for.”
