After Games 1 and 2, it didn't look like Jaromir Jagr was going to be much of an impact on the series. But a new and improved Jagr showed up to Game 3, and it's no coincidence that the B's started clicking on the offensive end.

Boston scored five goals on Monday - by five different players - and Jagr's third line was huge in the win.

Mike Felger and Tony Amonte discuss Jagr, the game, and more.

"He came out he was storming early," Amonte said. "Controlling the puck down low, setting up his line mates. Getting Peverley into the game, getting Kelly going as well. He just seemed to have a little extra edge tonight that he didn't have in Games 1 or 2. He was ready to play. He played his game. And you got to love it when you see a guy like this who's got the Stanley Cup rings but is still hungry to succeed in the NHL."

Age and fatigue may be creeping in for Jagr, but Amonte says, "That was Jagr's best period we've seen out of him in a long time."
