Jagr moved past Steve Yzerman and into sole possession of eighth place on the NHL goals list, one behind Mark Messier for seventh. Jagr's first power-play goal of the season gave him a team-leading 12 goals.
Stephen Gionta scored a short-handed goal during his first shift for the Devils (14-15-6) after an 11-game absence because of an ankle injury. Damien Brunner scored in the second and Eric Gelinas tallied in the third for New Jersey.
Martin Brodeur won his 10th game of the year by making 23 saves against Ottawa (14-16-6).
