Jagr passes Lemieux for seventh on NHL scoring list

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr passed former Pittsburgh Penguins star and teammate Mario Lemieux on the NHL all-time points list Saturday.

Jagr assisted on Marek Zidlicky's goal with 2.1 seconds to go in overtime against the Florida Panthers at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Travis Zajac won a faceoff back to Jagr; he backhanded a pass to Zidlicky, whose shot from above the right circle beat Tim Thomas to give New Jersey a 2-1 victory.

"Give credit to Travis," Jagr told MSG Network. "It's not easy to win it exactly where you wanted to win it."

The assist gave Jagr 1,724 points in the NHL, breaking the tie with Lemieux for seventh place on the League's all-time list. Lemieux reached 1,723 points in 915 games. Jagr passed him in his 1,437th regular-season game.

Jagr has 694 goals, tied with Mark Messier for seventh place on the all-time goals list.

Jagr, who turns 42 next month, has 11 points more than any Devils teammate (36; 13 goals, 23 assists). He has four game-winning goals this season and moved past Gordie Howe into first place all-time with No. 122 against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 18.

Steve Yzerman is sixth on the points list with 1,755. Mike Gartner is sixth on the goals list with 708.
