Even at 40, his dominant days of hockey admittedly behind him, Jaromir Jagr can still make a move that will leave everybody shaking their heads in disbelief.

He did it again Monday, declining to speak after his Philadelphia Flyers` first practice for a Stanley Cup first-round playoff showdown with the Penguins.

One of the first Flyers players in the dressing room at their practice facility, he disappeared quickly — even before teammates could compliment him for all the good he has done for them this season.

Surely Max Talbot, like Jagr a once heroic Penguin, could not have predicted that, not after detailing how Jagr "came here since Day 1 and had a huge smile on his face."

There were no smiles from Jagr on Monday.
