Video: Jaromir Jagr scores in Bruins debut

Apr 4, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

Boston Bruins fans welcomed Jaromir Jagr with a standing ovation and plenty of appreciation. The future Hall of Famer returned the favor by scoring his first goal in his first game in what some might call “Bruins style.”

In other words, it was a scrappy, ugly goal.

That’s not to say that Boston cannot score pretty ones – Jagr is likely to generate quite a few with current linemates Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand – but many probably didn’t expect this kind of work from the 41-year-old.

(He even has a blocked shot as well on Thursday, another endearing figure on a team that clearly values two-way play.)

This marks the 680th goal of the Czech legend’s NHL career, by the way.

As a bonus, here’s video of the standing ovation:

    Hard to think of a better way to start things off with a new team!

      I can, he could have scored 2 goals and gotten an assist like Clowe did last night.

        I can, he scored two goals and had two assists in his stars debut.

    They don’t ask how, they ask how many. GWG is a GWG. Nice job Jaro

    I was at the game tonight and the Ovation for Jagr was amazing. I’m sure he appreciated it and after the game in an interview he said he was sorry to Seguin and Marchand for “playing so badly” I wouldn’t say he played badly. Anyway nice job Jagr keep it up

    It’s cool that Jagr got the winning goal in his first game as a Bruin, but if Rask doesn’t stand on his head (again), the B’s lose this game. Badly.

    It looks good to see that Jagr has gone home to his original black and gold uniform.
    Oh wait, that is a B and not a P on that jersey.
    My bad.
