G: 695 | A: 1031 | PTS: 1726

MONTREAL -- Some people may look at Jaromir Jagr's career NHL statistics and wonder what could have been.

To those people, Jagr says don't bother. He doesn't.

Jagr passed another milestone is his prolific NHL career Tuesday when he scored his 695th goal in a 4-1 New Jersey Devils win against the Montreal Canadiens, passing Mark Messier for seventh place on the League's all-time goals list.

Jagr scored at 17:23 of the first period with a nice move to the middle around Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges before putting a low shot through a crowd past Carey Price just inside the far post.

CHICAGO -- Already playing with 17 skaters, the Colorado Avalanche finished a 3-2 overtime win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night without defenseman Erik Johnson.

The top-pair blueliner took one shift midway through the third period and didn't play again because of a back issue. Johnson is considered day-to-day, according to Avalanche coach Patrick Roy, who also made defenseman Cory Sarich a late scratch due to a back injury.

Johnson leads all Avalanche defensemen with 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 46 games.


Maurice: Jets to keep Byfuglien at wing -- for now

For those expecting new Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice to make a decision on whether to play Dustin Byfuglien at forward or defense in the near future, you may be waiting for a while.

One of Claude Noel's last moves before being removed as coach Sunday was moving Byfuglien from the blue line to forward alongside Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Byfuglien responded with two assists Monday night, helping Maurice win his debut in a 5-1 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes at MTS Centre.

Maurice ran his first practice as Jets coach Tuesday morning, and afterward told reporters he will keep Byfuglien at right wing for the time being. He was then asked if there was a timetable as to how long the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder would stay there.

"Right when I need to … and not before," Maurice said.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
