PHILADELPHIA — There wasn't much Jaromir Jagr in the second period of the 2012 NHL Winter Classic, as the Philadelphia Flyers star was limited to two shifts. But there was a Jagr-like salute given after a goal … by Michael Rupp of the New York Rangers.
That goal cut the Flyers' lead to 2-1.
Rupp appeared on CBC between periods, and was asked about the salute with regard to Jagr. His answer? "Oh, that's his? I've been doing that since I was a kid." (s/t Rick)
UPDATE: Jaromir Jagr, after the game, responding to a question about Rupp's salute: "We're still going to be play them three more times. And I think I'm going to score and I'm going to salute him back."
