NESN’s Barry Pederson talked to Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday about the impact Jaromir Jagr could have on the Bruins, what he’ll have to do to fit into the B’s system, and Patrice Bergeron‘s situation after leaving Tuesday’s game with an injury.

Pederson said he thinks Jagr will thrive in a supporting role, similar to the one he played in Philadelphia last year, not to mention in Pittsburgh when he first broke into the league.

The Bruins wanted to add a goal-scorer, and now they have it in Jaromir Jagr.



Clearly, the Bruins felt a positive buzz from the acquisition earlier in the day of Czech superstar and future hockey hall of famer Jaromir Jagr. The Bruins went out, fired 50 shots on net and beat the Senators, 3-2, at TD Garden.

But Bruins coach Claude Julien made it very clear that he’s not expecting the 41-year-old player to save the Bruins, just help them, much in the same way Mark Recchi helped Boston to a Stanley Cup in 2011.

The Bruins found the perfect way to celebrate the acquisition of superstar Jaromir Jagr.

Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday’s win over the Senators after colliding with Ottawa’s Colin Greening early in the second period and did not return. Following the game, Claude Julien offered no update on his condition.

Kaspars Daugavins joined the Bruins Tuesday at TD Garden and participated in their warmup prior to their game against the Senators, though he was made a health scratch for the game.

The Bruins claimed Daugavins off waivers from the Senators last Wednesday, but he was unable to get his work visa until Tuesday. In 19 games for the Senators this season, Daugavins has one goal and two assists for three points.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli met with the media shortly before Tuesday night’s game against the Senators to discuss the team’s acquisition of Jaromir Jagr. The Bruins sent Lane MacDermid, the rights to 2012 fifth-rounder Cody Payne and a conditional second-round pick to the Stars in exchange for the 41-year-old.

Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin. Or, to put it in terms more appropriate for this season, Jaromir Jagr is a Bruin and he’s actually a Bruin and the Penguins haven’t taken him away from the Bruins. 



The Bruins acquired Stars right wing Jaromir Jagr Tuesday for a draft pick and two minor prospects. The trade is the first Boston has made this season and it comes a day prior to Wednesday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline. The story was first reported by Czech reporter Roman Jedlicka.

The Bruins are getting some encouraging news on the injury front this week, as both Chris Kelly (leg) and Adam McQuaid (shoulder) skated Tuesday with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides. It was their second day on the ice, as the injured pair also skated Monday.
