Jagr was acquired by the Rangers for right wing Anson Carter
last Friday. The Czech superstar has been criticized for his
inconsistency and his hefty salary gave the Capitals more reason
to seek a deal.
The five-time NHL scoring champion made his Rangers debut
Saturday and was held scoreless in New York's worst defeat in a
decade, a 9-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.
Things brightened in Jagr's first home game Monday, when he had
a goal and two assists in a 5-2 victory over the Florida
Panthers. He played on a line centered by Eric Lindros, who has
two goals and four assists during a five-game points streak.
