During their recent four-game losing streak, the Bruins struggled offensively, scoring only seven goals.
In that span, Jaromir Jagr had two assists. Over his first eight games with the Bruins, the 41-year-old was mainly a facilitator, dishing out six assists to go with one goal.
When the Bruins acquired him in a April 2 trade, coach Claude Julien put him in the third line for a reason: to spread out the scoring.
And yesterday, Jagr did just that, sparking the Bruins’ 3-0 shutout of the Florida Panthers with a goal 3:03 into the game.
