Jagr Scores, but Omsk Loses (Updated)
Thursday August 07th 2008, 7:13 am

Jaromir Jagr picked up his first goal of the pre-season for Avangard Omsk, but the Hawks fell by the score of 3-2 to Ivan Baranka and his new team, Spartak Moscow, in game three of the President of the Republic of Bashkortostan Cup. Baranka picked up an assist on the first goal by Spartak, who were coming off a crushing 8-1 victory yesterday over Metallurg Magnitigorsk. Both Jagr’s and Cherepanov’s lines were back on the ice after getting game two of the tournament off. Cherepanov was held scoreless, and took two consecutive third period penalties. Jagr’s goal came in the 18th minute of the first period, a bit of revenge in the aftermath of a hip check that sent him flying “head over heels”. Late in the second period Cherepanov got his opportunity to take the ice with his idol during an Avangard power play, but the unit was unable to convert.

UPDATE: According to the box score provided on host team Salavat Yulaev’s web site, Jagr also picked up an assist in the game, on a power play goal by Pavel Rosa early in the third period. That gives him four points in two games, good for a tie for second in scoring in the tournament thus far, behind only former NHL-er Oleg Kvasha of Traktor Chelyabinsk, who’s played all three games for his team. Teammate Pavel Rosa and former Rangers draft pick Jan Marek — who was part of the deal that brought Sean Avery to the Rangers — have also picked up 4 points in 2 games.
