Jaromir Jagr only got two hours of sleep before he was asked to lace up his skates for the first time as a member of the Bruins.

The result?

The game-winning goal and a physical presence on the power play.

On Friday, Jagr practiced with the Bruins for the first time and he had the benefit of a full night's sleep. After practice, he discussed the importance of creating chemistry with Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin.

"They're gonna be stars in the league, no question about it," said Jagr. "I don't want to slow them down."

After only one game, it looks like Jagr is more than capable of holding his own.
