Jaromir Jagr still wants to play, but has gotten zero calls

Limited Reshad Jones Jersey After playing in all 82 games this past season, Jaromir Jagr still believes he can contribute to an NHL team.

The 45-year-old future Hall of Famer sent out a couple of tweets Thursday wondering why none of the NHL’s 31 clubs appears interested in signing him.

Laviolette actually has been a little more expansive in his discussion of Rinne — who has a .778 save percentage through Games 1 and 2 and is winless (0-7-2) in nine career starts against the Penguins — since pulling him from Wednesday’s loss.

Laviolette: I said it a couple days ago when everybody was asking about [Mike] Fisher and [Craig] Smith. I said it then. We don’t talk about the lineup. When they ask the next day, we’re going to stay consistent with that. We don’t discuss the lineup.

Downtown Nashville has become a Predators-obsessed place to be on playoff days and nights, with watch parties outside the arena and in the Music City Walk of Fame Park across the street. Then there’s the screaming 17,000-plus fans lucky enough to be in the arena.

The Preds entered the playoffs as the last seed in the West and were coming off an inconsistent regular season. The Blackhawks were picked by 47 of 50 national analysts to beat the Preds in Round 1. The ensuing sweep of Chicago startled the hockey world and was the catalyst in expanding the beast that is the Nashville fan base.
