Devils\' Jagr eighth on goals list, record game-winner
New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved into sole possession of eighth place on the NHL all-time goals list Thursday night with the 693rd of his career.

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr moved up on two of the NHL's all-time lists for goals with one shot Wednesday.

Jagr's power-play goal early in the second period at Prudential Center put him in sole possession of eighth place on the NHL's all-time goals list with 693 and eventually moved him into first place on the League's all-time list for game-winning goals with 122.

Jagr's next goal will tie him with Mark Messier for seventh place on the goals list. Jagr was tied with Gordie Howe on the game-winning list, but Jagr now has first place to himself because his goal was New Jersey's third in a 5-2 win against the Ottawa Senators.

In typical Jagr fashion, he cracked a joke when asked about his achievements.

"It's a long streak for me without a goal," said Jagr, who snapped an eight-game drought. "[Dainius Zubrus] did a great job to shut me down for eight games."

Zubrus scored three goals in the previous two games.

With the Devils on a power play, Jagr took a pass from Travis Zajac between the circles and shoveled a backhand past goalie Robin Lehner at 2:08 of the second.

"Finally I jump on the ice when he wasn't there so I could break the streak," Jagr said. "Hopefully I can keep scoring."

Jagr leads the Devils with 12 goals.
