At 42, ageless right winger Jaromir Jagr is showing no signs of slowing down.
Fact is, he has been the New Jersey Devils' top forward this season.
Jagr will face his former Flyers teammates Tuesday in a key Metropolitan Division matchup at the Wells Fargo Center.
"He protects the puck really well and you just have to keep him on the outside," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice in Voorhees.
Older players like Jagr, Streit said, "take care of their bodies and live a good lifestyle, and it makes a difference."
Jagr, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound physical-fitness addict, is a nondrinker, but veteran Devils goalie Martin Brodeur has been trying to get him to go out for a beer this season. Jagr had always turned him down, but he surprised Brodeur and joined him and a friend on a ride to a crosstown Pittsburgh establishment in December.
