Among the many records he is chasing this season, Jaromir Jagr needs just two goals to tie Brendan Shanhan for 11th place all-time.
Shanahan had 656 goals during his career. Jagr notched No. 653 in the second period against the Ducks with a power-play deflection and got No. 654 in the third period on the power play.
"I'm playing with good players and if I don't get injured I'm pretty confident I can catch him," Jagr said of Shanahan. "I'm not [in] game shape. It's going to take time. Tomorrow will probably be worse with back-to-back games."
Jagr has eight goals overall this season. This was his 116th career two-goal game and third of this season.
"In my mind, he's still one of the top players in the league," Kimmo Timonen said. "Hopefully, he stays healthy. He's going to help us a lot down the road. We all know what he'd done in his life and his career."
Jagr continues pursuit of history
