Talking With Jagr

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

I looked down from the press box Monday night during the national anthems, an electric atmosphere rocking Air Canada Centre before Game 3.

I wondered in particular what was going through Jaromir Jagr's mind. I was picturing the future Hall of Famer soaking it all in, wanting to make sure he enjoyed these types of moments as his spectacular career nears its final few laps.

And I was right.

"It's funny you ask me the question," Jagr said. "I was actually thinking about it during the national anthem. I'm not going to play many more games. Hopefully I might play a year, maybe two. I would love to. …

"It was pretty special, especially in Toronto and Canada where people love hockey so much. Even in our city in Boston. It's something you have to enjoy. It's special. It's kind of an extra bonus for a hockey player just to be part of that."
