09:08 AM ET 11.09 | Jaromir Jagr is the Devils' leading scorer, and after a month under his belt in New Jersey, he feels like he made the right call. "I'm happy right now, don't get me wrong. I'm very happy," said Jagr, who signed a one-year, $2 million pact with the Devils this offseason. "I love Lou. He's honest. If you play bad, he'll tell you. If you play good, he'll tell you. He's an honest guy. I have no complaints after signing with the Devils." So might the Flyers have another shot at Jagr after this year? In August, Jagr hinted that this season might be his last. Thursday, he seemed to change his tune. "I'll tell you one thing, as long as I don't die, it's not my last year of playing hockey," said Jagr, who will turn 42 in February. "I don't know where I'm gonna play. I don't know if I'm gonna play U.S. or somewhere else. I'm gonna play. I'll play until I cannot walk. I love the game too much to leave it."

After the game Handy Randy compared Staypuft's rush to Frank Mahovlich and Kessel didn't know who that is.
