Jaromir Jagr scores lone goal in Boston debut

Jared Wickerham

The game ended in a 1-0 victory for the Bruins, and Jagr had the only goal.

Sometimes trade deadline acquisitions can take a while to fit in with their new teams. It can take weeks or even months for players to adapt to new line-mates and systems -- and some players never end up making an impact in their new city at all.

That doesn't seem to be the case this year.

Ryane Clowe and the other new Rangers led New York to an offensive explosion in their first game with the team. Ben Bishop got a 45-save shutout in his Lightning debut. You just knew Jaromir Jagr had to get in on this action, right?


Jagr scored the first and only goal of the game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils, after a pass from Brad Marchand deflected off his skate and through Martin Brodeur's legs. Sure it wasn't the prettiest goal of Jagr's career, but that didn't matter in the end -- the Bruins got the victory, and Jagr was immediately a difference-maker with his new club.

Tuukka Rask had 40 saves in the shutout effort.
