Jaromir Jagr Gets 700th Goal and Devils Rout the Islanders

Jaromir Jagr Gets 700th Goal, UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Jaromir Jagr was an opposing star for the Pittsburgh Penguins when Wayne Gretzky played his last game, for the Rangers in 1999. Jagr, a 42-year-old Czech, and Gretzky, the N.H.L.’s career scoring leader, now share another milestone: career goal No. 700 at Nassau Coliseum against the Islanders.

Jagr became the seventh player in league history to reach that mark as the Devils rolled past the hapless Islanders, 6-1, on Saturday. The Devils (26-22-13) won their second straight after the Olympic break to further tighten the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Adam Henrique opened the scoring for the Devils at the five-minute mark of the first period with a power-play goal, his 17th, before Jagr made it 2-0 at 3 minutes 31 seconds of the second with his milestone goal, his team-leading 19th of the season.
