Whether he scored the game-winner or not—still no word from the NHL, so assume that he did—Jaromir Jagr was in rare form after the game. With a swollen bloody lip and a row of missing teeth, the Rangers captain was well aware of his frightful appearance.Ã‚Â
“It’s Halloween tomorrow – I don’t have to buy a mask,” he said. “Broke my skate in the first period. Broke my gloves in the second. Broke my teeth. Broke my heart.”
Jagr was asked whether those were his teeth he lost.
“A gentlemen never tells,” he said. “I told my girlfriend they’re real.”
Then he added: “I think it’s mine when I paid $20,000 for it.”
