NHL action: Jágr gets three assists

Only a few games remain in the NHL regular season but a number of Czech players made their mark on Thursday, including Jaromír Jágr, who earned three assists for the Philadelphia. The Flyers defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs by a lopsided 7:1. Philadelphia have already clinched a place in the Stanley Cup playoffs and are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference. Toronto, by comparison are well out of contention (fans at the stadium for the game even began a ‘Let’s go Blue Jays!’ chant at one point – referring to the city’s baseball team). On Thursday Czechs earned assists or scored in seven games.
