BOSTON -- Jaromir Jagr had an assist on the Boston Bruins' lone goal against the Islanders, a power-play score by Tyler Seguin early in the second, to give Jagr six points in the five games he has played since the Bruins traded two prospects and a first-round pick to the Stars for the 41-year-old.

Jagr, the former Ranger -- and Penguin, Capital and Flyer -- is happy to be back in the Eastern Conference. “Only have what, 10 more teams to go?’’ he joked about playing for the entire conference.
