WILMINGTON, Mass. - Jaromir Jagr is headed back to where his brilliant career began.
He'll be in Pittsburgh with the Boston Bruins when they begin the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins.
Jagr spent 11 years with the Penguins and capped his first two NHL seasons with Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. More than two decades later, the 41-year-old right wing is trying to help the Bruins win their second in three years.
It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
