Jaromir Jagr’s first winning goal for the New Jersey Devils was a record-breaking occasion. Scoring on a second-period breakaway, Jagr moved past Phil Esposito into second place on the NHL's all-time list with his 119th career game-winning goal as the Devils edged the Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-1, Tuesday at Prudential Center. It was Jagr's third goal of the season and 684th of the 41-year-old's amazing career. Gordie Howe still holds the all-time record with 121, although the NHL and Devils somehow overlooked Mr. Hockey when they announced that Jagr had set a new mark at The Rock. With the tireless Jagr just two behind Howe, the all-time record is still well within reach.
