Just one look at the Penguins’ all-time offensive leaders would give any netminder nightmares, but Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr are only the beginning.
In addition to Jagr and Super Mario, the Pens have had many other legendary snipers call Pittsburgh home. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are the current squad and both of whom are nearing the franchise’s top 5 scoring list...
As a Wings fan, I can only congratulate Jaromir Jagr for this one:
Per the Associated Press:
Jaromir Jagr could always score goals -- and on this night, a bunch of other New Jersey Devils did as well. Jagr had a goal and two assists, and the Devils scored four goals in the third period of a 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Jaromir Jagr could always score goals -- and on this night, a bunch of New Jersey Devils did as well.
Jagr had a goal and two assists, and the Devils scored four goals in the third period of a 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.
Jagr's goal with 3:29 left was the 692nd of his career, tying him with Steve Yzerman for eighth on the NHL&...
Not all winning streaks turn heads, but they do when you had previously lost the first seven games of your season.
Insert the New Jersey Devils. “Jersey’s Team” has now won three straight games, two of which were against the NHL’s elite Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. Now, the Devils are hoping they can squeak out a win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday before...

If last year’s subpar postseason performance led some to wonder if age had finally caught up to Jaromir Jagr, the 41-year-old’s play so far this season has silenced any doubters.
The second-oldest player in the NHL behind Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne, Jagr leads the Devils in goals (nine), points (18) and plus-minus (plus-10) through 22 games.
He’s expected to suit up for his...
For the 121st time in his NHL career, Jaromir Jagr scored the game-deciding goal to lift the New Jersey Devils to their third straight win in a 2-1 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Kings last night.
Thirteen seconds after being freed from the penalty box in the five minute extra period, Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky sent a pass Jagr who was virtually...
It wasn't pretty, but they won the game.
Despite being outplayed for the better part of over 60 minutes, the Devils managed to squeeze out two points in Los Angeles.
The Devils have now won three consecutive games including wins over Los Angeles and Anaheim to kick off a tough west coast road trip.
Jaromir Jagr and Ryan Carter were the Devils goal scorers while Cory...
LOS ANGELES — Jaromir Jagr‘s second clutch goal in two nights gave the New Jersey Devils a fortunate win after they were held to 15 shots by the Los Angeles Kings.
Jagr tied Gordie Howe‘s NHL record of 121 game-winning goals by scoring 2:30 into overtime, and Cory Schneider made 34 saves to lead the Devils over the Kings 2-1 on Thursday.
“We were outplayed and outshot. We...
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Maik,
New Jersey was better in the third and it was 1-1 heading into overtime, when Jagr produced the game winner, a milestone on two important fronts. It was the 690th goal of Jagr’s illustrious NHL career, which tied him for ninth on the all-time goal-scoring list with his former boss and teammate in Pittsburgh, Mario Lemieux. It was...
Jaromir Jagr is a lock for the Czech national team when it competes in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, but don’t even suggest that it will be the Devils winger’s last Olympics.
Jagr would be 46 if he played in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
“I understand that. It’s funny, but don’t forget that by then I’ll be playing in Europe on the big ice...
Jaromir Jagr tied Gordie Howe's NHL record of 121 game-winning goals, scoring 2:30 into overtime, and Cory Schneider made 34 saves Thursday night to lead the New Jersey Devils over the Los Angeles Kings 2-1.

Cory Schneider knows before he even steps into his crease that he probably isn’t going to get much offensive support.
So it came as no surprise that the Devils waited until overtime before Jaromir Jagr scored yet another big goal for a 2-1 victory over the Kings Thursday night at Staples Center.
Jagr took a pass from Marek Zidlicky and scored at 2:30 of overtime for his ninth...
A couple of New Jersey Devils are doing all they can to turn back the clock and pull a quick one on Father Time, and so far, it’s working out pretty well.
Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur, who were both drafted in the 1990 draft, are still doing their thing for the Devils this season. New Jersey wasn’t expected to do much this seaosn, but they’re in the thick of things in the...
A game that featured three of the greatest hockey players of the last 20 years ended in decidedly inauspicious fashion for the Anaheim Ducks.
The matchup between New Jersey’s Jaromir Jagr and Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne — the NHL’s two oldest players and Nos. 10 and 11, respectively, on the all-time goals list — with future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur in net lived up to its...
Jaromir Jagr scored the tying goal with 1:01 left in regulation, and the New Jersey Devils ended Anaheim's eight-game home winning streak to open the season with a 4-3 victory over the Ducks on Wednesday night.
Travis Zajac got credit for the winning goal at 2:58 of overtime, but the Ducks put it in their own net. Ben Lovejoy hit teammate Corey Perry with the puck while attempting...

For the fifth time over their last six games, the New Jersey Devils' efforts led to at least one point.
That was the case again on Saturday as they beat the Metropolitan leading Pittsburgh Penguins to the tune of 4-1.
Adam Larsson scored his first goal of the season, which was the eventual game-winner, while Andy Greene and Jaromir Jagr (2) also found the back of the net...
The obvious joke is that if Jaromir Jagr got pumped when he faced all of his former teams, he’d be a 60-goal scorer again.
In reality, the Devils’ right winger is past all that. At 41, he stills gets pumped up to the point where he has been the team’s best forward in almost every game this season.
So when Jagr scored two goals against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 4-1 victory...
Jaromir Jagr scored two goals and Martin Brodeur made 27 saves to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.
Andy Greene and Adam Larsson also scored for New Jersey, which has won three of its past five.
Chris Kunitz scored for Pittsburgh. The Penguins have lost four of six. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 18 of 21 shots.

Just a ho-hum game ripped from the annals of 1996.
Or so it seemed Sunday night at Prudential Center, where Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur were two of the best players on the ice, joining forces to lead the Devils to a dominating 5-0 win over the Predators.
“It’s the way we like it,” Brodeur said. “Solid game, that’s the bottom line. That’s the way we need to play.”...

Jaromir Jagr added yet another bullet point to his impressive resume on Sunday night.
The 41-year-old winger didn’t wait long to reach his latest milestone, scoring just 90 seconds into the game against the Predators to record his fifth goal of the season. Although Jagr’s shot marked his team-leading 12th point of the season, it more importantly served as the 1,700th point of...
