Czechs blanked in bronze medal game
Czechs blanked in bronze medal game; Jagr announces retirement from international play

The Czech Republic’s bid for bronze came up empty at the IIHF World Championship on Sunday.

The Czechs were blanked, 3-0, by defending champion Sweden and Anders Nilsson, who made 29 saves. It would have been the third bronze in four years for the Czech Republic, which ended the tournament with back-to-back 3-0 losses.

Jaromir Jagr announced to reporters after the loss that he has played his final game for the Czech national team. He led the club with eight points (4g-4a) in 10 games.

"This was for sure the last one," Jagr told the IIHF website. "It's not that I would think I'm not good enough for it. But this is a different hockey than I play. My hockey doesn't fit this style."

The 42-year-old was seeking his third bronze and fifth medal at the world championship. He finishes with 29 goals and 37 assists for 66 points in 70 career games.

He won world championship titles in 2005 and 2010 and Olympic gold in 1998. He reached the Olympic quarterfinals in this year's Winter Games, the fifth of his career.

Jagr, who re-signed with the Devils on April 30, will return for a second season in New Jersey in 2014-15.
