DENVER -- Jaromir Jagr got his 1,850th NHL point in the first period to tie Gordie Howe for third place in League history, but Colorado Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard made 38 saves in a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers at Pepsi Center on Thursday.

Jagr caught Howe at 9:42 of the first period. He was above the right circle when he passed to Aleksander Barkov down low. Barkov slipped the puck through the slot to defenseman Erik Gudbranson for a shot that beat Pickard to tie it 1-1. It was Gudbranson's second goal of the season and first in 44 games.

Jagr's 48 points (21 goals, 27 assists) in 61 games lead the Panthers. He has 743 goals and 1,107 assists in 1,611 NHL games.

Though it is challenging to compare two very different players who competed in very different eras, there is sufficient statistical evidence that this milestone is an accurate reflection of the fact Jagr's scoring achievements have legitimately matched Howe's.
