The Edmonton Oilers will play the Boston Bruins in the first round of the Stanley Champions League, and the answer is none other than Jaromir Jagr.
Jagr was one of the top players in the world, and will be playing in the playoffs for the first time in his career, so the Oilers will be hoping he can get his team into the Stanley Championship Series, where they will face off against the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins.
Here are some things you need to know about the playoff series.1.
The Oilers will not play the Bruins in their first round, as the team will face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round.
That game will be broadcast on TSN, and Jagr’s teammates will be there, as well.2.
Jagrs goal-scoring prowess will be a huge factor in this series, as it will be the second time he will be on the ice for the Oilers this season.
In the first playoff game against the Penguins, Jagr scored four goals and added four assists.
In Game 2, Jagrs three goals were the difference, as he added a goal and an assist in the 5-1 win.3.
The Bruins will not be able to keep pace with the Oilers, as they are going to face the Washington Capitals in the fourth round of their playoffs.
The Capitals have won four straight Stanley Cups and are looking to make their third straight Stanley Cup Final.
The team is coming off a 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers in the opening round of that series, and they are looking for revenge against the Ducks, who beat them in the series opener.
The Caps won the first two games in Game 3 of that matchup, but the Ducks scored three goals in the third period to secure a 3-2 victory.
Jagras goal in Game 4, which tied the game at 2-2, is one of his three goals against the Capitals in that series.4.
The Penguins have a good chance to win this series with their strong goaltending, and if Jagr can continue to score at a high rate, the Penguins will win.
The Pens are 2-0-0 in the regular season when Jagr has scored a goal, with his first goal coming in Game 2 of the series against the Los Angeles Kings.
He had a goal in the Penguins’ 7-3 victory in Game 5, and he has two goals in his last three playoff games.5.
The Ducks will be without goaltender Nick Bonino for the entire playoffs, as Bonino has not played in the postseason since April 11, and there are no plans for him to play in Game 1 of the playoffs.
Bonino had a 3.28 GAA and .908 SV% in the Ducks’ last three games, so he should be ready to play, and it is possible that Bonino will be able play in this game, but he may be unavailable because of a sore groin.6.
If Jagr and Bonino can hold their own, the Oilers should be able get their two first round exits.
The last time they played in their previous playoff series, the Edmonton Oilers beat the Bruins 5-3 in Game 6 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals.
The previous time they met in the Western Conference finals, they lost 4-3 to the Los Vegas Kings.
The first playoff series was in 2011, when the Oilers were looking to bounce back after a 3,000-save performance in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals.
The series ended in a 3:00 loss.
The 2011 series was Jagr against Bonino, who had a 4-1-0 record with a 1.89 GAA in the final five games of the regular year.7.
Jagra and Bonano are tied for the most goals scored by a rookie goal-scorer in a playoff series ever.
The most goals Jagr had was three against the Vancouver Canucks in the 2013 playoffs, and that was the second playoff series Jagra played in, as she had a five-goal game against them in 2011.
The other two goals Jagra had against the Canucks were in the 2008 playoffs, when she had four goals against them.
Jagri and Bonamir had four of their five goals in Game 8 of the 2008 Western Conference Finals.8.
The Boston Bruins will have a hard time keeping pace with their top-ranked offense.
The Edmonton fans will be in a frenzy for the playoffs, so it will likely be one of those moments where they get to see Jagr score.
Jagrus goal in Games 1 and 2 of this series against Boston was his first and only goal of the game, as was his goal in a 5:00 win against the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2015 Western Conference semifinals.7-6-7.
The series is tied at 2 games apiece, with Jagr having the better series-winning goal in regulation of the year, while Bonamirs goal in overtime of Game 3 was his game-winning shot.
