Jaromir Jagr is the 2nd leading scorer in the league. The New York Rangers are leading the Atlantic Division.
If someone told you that at the beginning of the season you might find it hard to believe., but it’s true.
Jagr seems like the Jagr of old, the winner of 5 scoring titles. He is playing with purpose now, and actually trying. The talent he has in undeniable and the new rules seem to give him more space and time than he ever had. The Habs will have to pay close attention to him the way they did Simon Gagne and Peter Forsberg last week, if they hope to win.
The Rangers only have 1 road victory to date and the Habs are 3-0 in their last 3 home starts. Look for another close scoring game. If the Habs can keep Jagr in check they should find their 4th consecutive home win.
