Jagr jokingly tweets he's 'old and no good' after stellar save by Rinne

BY foxsports • December 4, 2015

Florida Panthers veteran forward Jaromir Jagr appears a bit fixated on his age of late.

After saying he was "too old" to compete in the new 3-on-3 format for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game, the 43-year-old went to the well once again after he was denied on a point-blank opportunity in Florida's 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday.

Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau skated in on a 2-on-1 rush with Jagr before the latter attempted to swat a loose puck into the open net. Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne used his paddle to thwart the backhanded bid by Jagr, who took to Twitter to take a jab at himself for failing to score his ninth goal of the season and 731st career.

Old and no good? Perhaps many would beg to differ.
