Earlier in the week, Bruins forward Jaromir Jagr said he didn’t need, or want, a rest before the playoffs.

Well, he might get one anyway, because apparently he’s got the flu.

It’s not clear if the 41-year-old will be in the lineup Saturday in Washington.

“He may join us tomorrow; he may not,” said B’s coach Claude Julien today, per “He’s got a flu bug right now.”

The Bruins, who are battling Montreal for first place in the Northeast Division, finish the regular season Sunday at home to Ottawa.

Julien also provided an update on injured forward Nathan Horton (upper body), who definitely won’t play tomorrow.

“Nathan’s doing fine,” said Julien. “He’s skating every day, he’s getting better. We’re being extra cautious, but we’re making ready he’ll be fine when the time comes.”

    “He’s skating every day, he’s getting better”…almost doesn’t sound like a hand injury.

    “Hey Jagr, can you walk up and down the hallway with a thermometer in your mouth and a crumpled up tissue in your hand?”

    “Jagr might sit out our last game before the playoffs, he’s got the flu.”

      ….is Pittsburghese for screaming, pathetic, cringing milksop….

      Usually yelled as a derogative to those of superior intellect by those stalking the wives and daughters, and possibly sons, of his mother’s neighbors.

    Isn’t “Whammy” what the boss men used to say to tell all the poor Pittsburgh slobs as they were being laid off from their now irrelevant steel working jobs?
