Jaromir Jagr's creeps up on 700 goal mark, ties Yzerman for 8th in Devils' win over Canes

11/30/2013 at 2:12am EST

As a Wings fan, I can only congratulate Jaromir Jagr for this one:

Per the Associated Press:

Jaromir Jagr could always score goals -- and on this night, a bunch of other New Jersey Devils did as well. Jagr had a goal and two assists, and the Devils scored four goals in the third period of a 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.

Jagr's goal with 3:29 left was the 692nd of his career, tying him with Steve Yzerman for eighth on the NHL's all-time list

In his previous game, he passed longtime Pittsburgh teammate Mario Lemieux. Next up: Mark Messier at 694.

"I don't really chase anything," Jagr said. "I enjoy my teammates and my linemates. I enjoy the game, the way we play. Our line, I like the way our line played. When I'm happy about our game, I know the goals are going to come. That's why I don't really worry about it," he added. "If there's no chances to score goals, then I would start worrying about it."
