Jagr chooses to fight through the check until he's got three guys crawling all over him and loses the puck.

Meanwhile, George Parros goes down like a ton of bricks on a little grab by Betts and the refs call it. Despicable.

That aside, Jagr's shot is gone. He just doesn't have the muster on it that he used to and he knows it. Probably because of his shoulder. That's why he's relucant shoot and passes up golden opportunities in the slot. Can't blame him for it, but at the same time you can't make excuses. He's been like this for a year and a half and he's not going to get better.
that montreal game xcheck from behind courtesy of komisarek went down 5 minutes after Hollweg went out of the game for similar infraction.
Jagr must have a patience of a saint on him....well actually this says that he takes a lot of punishment to help the team.....meanwhile Kostitsyn lies down and plays dead to get a benefit for his team.
