Jagr probably won't play in Devils' preseason finale

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr told reporters after practicing Wednesday that he probably won't play Thursday in the team's preseason finale against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I'm probably not going to play [Thursday] only because I didn't have a practice with my teammates," said Jagr, who has skated on his own and with a group of Devils on Tuesday who weren't playing in that evening's game in Philadelphia.

Jagr, who left the Devils' first practice Sept. 12 with a lower-body injury, said the final decision belongs to the New Jersey coaching staff, but that he wouldn't be concerned about not getting into a preseason game and feels practices will be enough to get him up to speed.

The Devils open the regular season Oct. 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
