Jagr scores 700th goal as Devils crush Isles
Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Jaromir Jagr scored his 700th NHL goal in the New Jersey Devils' 6-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday.
Jagr became the seventh player in NHL history to reach the 700-goal mark, joining Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Brett Hull, Marcel Dionne, Phil Esposito and Mike Gartner.
Adam Henrique, Ryane Clowe, Eric Gelinas, Marek Zidlicky and Jagr each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who have won two in a row. Mark Fayne also lit the lamp.
Martin Brodeur made 18 saves in his first start since a bad performance against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 26, when he was pulled after giving up six goals in two periods.
Kyle Okposo scored the lone goal for the Islanders, who failed to build off Thursday's overtime win against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Evgeni Nabokov stopped 14-of-19 shots before being pulled. Anders Nilsson, who was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) prior to the game, turned aside 15-of-16 shots in the third period.
