Sean Avery was asked how exactly Marty Brodeur responds when he’s in his face the whole game. “His accent’s too thick. I can’t understand him.” Avery also referred to David Clarkson as a “boneheaded minor leaguer.” Good to have Avery back to flll up our notebook.
Jaromir Jagr’s time was limited in the third period and overtime because of a tweaked groin sustained in the first period. No word on the severity, but Jagr did play through it most of the way.
Brandon Dubinsky said he didn’t get word that he was going to play with Jaromir Jagr until this morning. Tom Renney said he was pleased with what he saw. My guess is you’ll see it again Monday — assuming Jagr plays.
