Jaromir Jagr scores goal No. 693 in Devils' 5-2 win over Ottawa

NEWARK, N.J. - Jaromir Jagr scored his 693rd career goal, Reid Boucher netted his first in the NHL and the New Jersey Devils beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2 Wednesday night.

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).

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
