Jagr was simply awesome going down the stretch and in this first playoff series. He cares, he's happy, he's hungry and I think the rest of the team is really responding to him. I think it was telling that when the Rangers were celebrating the Game 4 win on the ice, Sean Avery went straight to Jagr to celebrate and horse around.
It's funny how Avery has seemingly pulled this team together. I think issues with Jagr and team chemistry have been overblown since he's been here--especially the "flap" with Aaron Ward--but everyone seems to be legitimately close right now. Jagr laughing with Shanny and Avery, people sticking up for one another, it's just great. The team has really gelled.
