Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Jaromir Jagr scored the game-winner 2:30
into overtime to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 triumph over the Los
Angeles Kings on Thursday at Staples Center.

Jagr was whistled for holding 17 seconds into overtime, but LA’s Dustin Brown
received a diving penalty on the play and the teams skated 3-on-3.

Just after both minors ended, Marek Zidlicky threw the disc to the slot for a
cutting Jagr, who controlled the puck between the circles before stuffing it
home from the low right side for his 690th career goal, tying him with Mario
Lemieux for ninth on the NHL’s all-time list.

Ryan Carter scored New Jersey’s lone regulation goal 5:52 into the third,
while Cory Schneider stopped 34 shots for the Devils, who earned their fifth
win in six tries despite managing just 15 shots.

Justin Williams netted LA’s only goal, while Ben Scrivens made just 13 saves
for the Kings, who had their four-game win streak halted.
