I’m still reeling from that goal by Jagr. Talk about theatrics. You know, a mere wave to the crowd would have probably been fine, too.
Other than that, a pretty good first period by the Rangers — maybe a little bit sloppy, but certainly featuring the sort of intensity you’d expect on opening night.
By the way, Howard Stern is at the game, as is Matthew Modine. I know this because the Rangers PR staff handed out a list of celebrities at the game. What a bunch of goofs: they forgot to mention Jagr!
