‘Around the League’: Jagr, Luongo make history

From NHL.com's "Around the League" notebook:

LUONGO, JAGR CLIMB RECORD BOOKS IN PANTHERS WIN

Roberto Luongo made 24 saves and Jaromir Jagr (2-1—3) factored on all three Florida Panthers goals to help them improve to 11-1-2 in their past 14 games against the Sabres dating to March 17, 2012 (BUF: 3-8-3).

* Luongo won his 403rd game, tying Grant Fuhr for ninth place on the NHL all-time wins list. Glenn Hall is eighth with 407 wins. Luongo's next game will be his 868th, tying him with Fuhr for ninth in games played among goalies. Luongo is the active leader in games played, wins and shutouts (68).

* Jagr, who has 4-2—6 in four games this season, had his 124th career NHL multi-goal game and second of the season; his other was Oct. 10 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Elias says Jagr had at least three points in a game for the 192nd time in his NHL career. Only three players have more three-point games: Wayne Gretzky (459), Mario Lemieux (272) and Marcel Dionne (202).

* Overall, Jagr (726-1,082—1,808 in 1,554 GP) is five goals shy of matching Dionne (731) for the fourth-most goals in NHL history.

* Jagr had two of his points while on the man-advantage (1-1—2). His 205th power-play goal propelled him past Gretzky (204 PPG) and into a tie with Joe Sakic for 13th in NHL history. With 587 power-play points, Jagr also moved within one point of tying Teemu Selanne (588) for third all-time in power-play points.
