Jagr scores 700th NHL goal, sparks Devils' 6-1 rout of Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player to score 700 NHL goals, sparking New Jersey's four-goal second period, and Martin Brodeur earned the win in his first start in over a month as the Devils routed the New York Islanders 6-1 on Saturday.

Jagr gave the Devils a 2-0 lead early in the second, and Ryane Clowe, Marek Zidlicky, and Mark Fayne followed in rapid succession. The four goals came in a span of 4:36 in the first 8:07 of the second.

Adam Henrique opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 5:00 of the first. New Jersey needed only 12 shots to net its first four goals and 16 total to get to five against beleaguered goalie Evgeni Nabokov. Clowe and Zidlicky, with a milestone assist from Jagr, also tallied during power plays.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
