Bruins Top 10 Games of 2013: Regular Season No. 5

Throughout the next two weeks Bruins Daily will be taking a look at some of the Bruins best games of the 2013 season. This week we will focus on the Top 5 games of the regular season while next week we take a look at the Bruins Top 5 games of the 2013 playoffs.

Today we kick things off with the Bruins fifth best regular season game of 2013.

New Jersey Devils vs. Boston Bruins, April 4, 2013

After striking out on Jarome Iginla just prior to the trade deadline, the Bruins went out and acquired future Hall-of-Fame forward Jaromir Jagr. No.68 suited up for the Bruins for the first time against the New Jersey Devils and to no surprise, Jagr made an immediate impact.

Jagr scored the only goal of the game to give the Bruins a 1-0 victory. The goal wasn’t very Jagr-like as a Brad Marchand pass deflected off the skate of Jagr and into the Devils’ net.

The goal wasn’t exactly how Jagr had pictured it, but he wasn’t complaining after the game.

“I knew it was coming,” said Jagr. “They always said, ‘You’ve got to drive to the net,’ and now I understand why they were saying that, and I never really drive to the net, now I know why. If I knew it when I was 20, I would have 100 more goals by now.”

Tuukka Rask made 40 saves in the win for what was, at the time, his third shutout of the year.

Here are the game highlights:
