Jagr entered the Flyers' zone down the right wing, spun along the half boards and ripped a long shot that Cammalleri redirected with his stick past Flyers goaltender Steve Mason to the long side. The assist was his 1,756th point, moving him past Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman for sixth place.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals began celebrating their 40th anniversary season Thursday when they faced off against the Montreal Canadiens in their season opener at Verizon Center. It was an occasion to savor, considering the franchise's struggles during its first decade.
The Capitals finished last in their division in six of their first eight seasons. Their first-season won-lost mark of 8-67-5 represents the NHL single-season records for fewest wins and points (21) in a season.
The on-ice struggles led to low fan turnout and interest. Owner Abe Pollin threatened relocation.
But the Capitals ultimately stayed in Washington, with a big assist from a September 1982 trade with the Canadiens that brought defenseman and future Hall of Famer Rod Langway to Washington.
"[Craig Laughlin and I] get on the phone to our agents," Langway recalled, "and we said, 'Are we sure we want to be here?'"
Two games which aired Wednesday on Rogers offered a glimpse of new camera angles the network will be showcasing as the NHL's national television partner in Canada.

Panik, 23, has eight goals and 22 points in 75 games over parts of two seasons with the Lightning, who selected him in the second round (No. 52) of the 2009 NHL Draft.
"It's going to be a great motivation for me to play in front of those fans and just bring my A-game every night," Panik said Thursday, according to Canadian Press. "There's a lot more pressure going there because it's Canada and especially Toronto. I'm just going to focus on my game, and my next step is getting into the lineup and go from there."
