Old men Jagr, Brodeur renew rivalry
VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) - Jaromir Jagr's long hair that once flowed beneath his helmet is much shorter now, and his playoff beard has plenty of gray in it.
Like the man he'll be shooting pucks at in the next round of the playoffs, Jagr is the old man in the dressing room these days. But both Jagr and Martin Brodeur have shown they have plenty of game left.
The familiar foes will meet again when the Philadelphia Flyers open the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday afternoon.
"It's going to be special, that's for sure,'' Jagr said. "He's going to turn 40 and I'm already 40.''
