Jaromir Jagr pretended not to be impressed when alerted that the Flyers are averaging four goals a game — best in the NHL.
"We had a high-scoring team in Pittsburgh [in the 1990s], but back then everyone was scoring a lot of goals," the 39-year-old first-line right wing said with a smirk after Monday's practice. "It was normal to score five, six goals. Well, we gotta start scoring. Four's not much. We gotta go for five [per game]. We gotta focus."
Jagr broke into a laugh, then got serious.
"It's still early in the season … but that's the way we play," he said. "It's kind of an aggressive style. We have five-man units fore-checking, plus we have a lot of talent that can score goals."
