Another milestone for Jagr; Devils score 4 goals in 3rd period of 5-2 victory over Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. - Jaromir Jagr had a goal and two assists, and the New Jersey 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's all-time list.

Adam Henrique scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 7:58 left after Andrei Loktionov tied it with 11:17 remaining.

Dainius Zubrus then added a goal off a deflection and also had an assist, after Mark Fayne scored an early goal to help the Devils snap a three-game losing streak.

Jeff Skinner and Jordan Staal scored in the second period to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead.

Cory Schneider stopped 16 shots in his first start since Nov. 21 for New Jersey. Cam Ward made 26 saves in his fourth straight start for the Hurricanes.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
