Video: Jagr sets up Bergeron, moves ahead of Coffey on all-time playoff scoring list

Jun 17, 2013, 10:10 PM EDT

Jaromir Jagr might not have any goals in the 2013 playoffs, but that hasn’t stopped him from collecting more career milestones.

With this beautiful assist to Patrice Bergeron in Game 3 on Monday, he collected the 197th playoff point of his distinguished career, taking the fifth spot on the all-time postseason scoring list:

Jagr, 41, came into the night tied with Hall of Famer Paul Coffey for fifth place with 196 points. Here is how the top six looks as of this writing:

1. Wayne Gretzky: 122 goals, 260 assists for 382 points (208 games played)
2. Mark Messier: 109 goals, 186 assists for 295 points (236 games played)
3. Jari Kurri: 106 goals, 127 assists for 233 points (200 games played)
4. Glenn Anderson: 93 goals, 121 assists for 214 points (225 games played)
5. Jagr: 78 goals, 119 assists for 197 points (198 games, soon to be 199)
6. Coffey: 59 goals, 137 assists for 196 points (194 games played)

Anyone thinking about a certain Edmonton Oilers dynasty all of a sudden? Weird.

    It was right after Bolland’s slewfooting penalty expired, but he should the blame for that. Stupid, dirty penalty to take in the Finals.

    omg, two cheap shots.

      Funny story – you could be a double amputee and still count the number of Cups Vancouver has won on your fingers.

    @ imleftcoast

    The fact that you left 2 comments about BS and not even mention the excellence of Jagr feat speaks volumes to your intelligence and understanding of the game….haven’t you got some homework to do?

      @ spitfisher,

      Wow, stats. I hope you ran up the basement stairs when you saw this post, and told your mom about it since hockey is just about stats. t’s was a great pass, Jagr’s been playing a long time, and there’s a lot of Oilers b/c they and the Pens had some good teams played a lot of playoff games. Fascinating.

      As a guy who plays the game, rather than sits in front of his computer all day worrying about stats, it was surprised someone would make two selfish plays like that and cost his team a game in the Finals. Since you’ve obviously never played the game or been slewfooted, you missed the point.

    Man, Gretzky was good.

      The 80’s were the best time for Hockey in general.

      • pedroskybb - Jun 17, 2013 at 11:51 PM

        five of the top six players got the majority of their points with those 80s Oilers teams.

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 17, 2013 at 11:52 PM

        I know. It’s truely amazing. It makes be wish that same kind of skill was on display nowadays.

      • 19to77 - Jun 18, 2013 at 12:21 AM

        It’s not a matter of more skill then compared to now. The Crosbys and Ovechkins of today’s League could have scored 150+ points in the 80’s too. Firewagon hockey was all about offense and goaltending was an afterthought. Imagine if every goalie in today’s NHL were Ilya Bryzgalov, and you start to get an idea of how easy goals were to come by in those days.

        Not to imply the stars of that era weren’t exceptionally skilled, of course – just that fewer points and lower-scoring games today aren’t a result of less skill so much as a MUCH greater focus on defense and goaltending. Greater roster parity via the salary cap also factors in heavily. The game changed, but players’ talent didn’t.

        Personally, it doesn’t really matter to me how or why it happened. The bottom line is that there is less skill on display, less creativity on display and I could watch these same type of games in the AHL for a third of the price. That’s shameful.

      • jpelle82 - Jun 18, 2013 at 10:43 AM

        more like the lack of skill….goalies were terrible then. if given the space and time gretzky had and add the gaping nets behind the terrible tiny goalie equipment, the stars of today would be putting up huge numbers too.

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 18, 2013 at 10:45 AM

        So, it’s time to reign in the goalies and their equipment.

      • jpelle82 - Jun 18, 2013 at 11:12 AM

        rein – you rein in a horse

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 18, 2013 at 11:18 AM

        Hahaha…fair enough…..I must have missed the memo about blogging being graded like term paper.

      • jpelle82 - Jun 18, 2013 at 1:44 PM

        sorry its a pet peeve of mine when people use the wrong word in idioms….like coming down the “pipe”, or “chomping” at the bit, “bold”-faced lie, or the worst for me… “wet” your appetite.

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 18, 2013 at 6:43 PM

        It’s cool, I feel that same way about 2-1 games. It makes me want to brainwash every defensive game plan there is from the minds of coaches in any and every sport.

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 18, 2013 at 6:48 PM

        For what it’s worth, If the Bruins were winning games 6-1 and finishing plays that made me marvel at their skill and vision I’d be a huge Boston fan.

        I actually loved the 2007 patriots. That offense was something for the ages.

      • pens5829 - Jun 18, 2013 at 7:13 PM

        2007 Patriots = Spygate. Haven’t squat since.

      • ucaneverscorenoughgoals - Jun 18, 2013 at 7:17 PM

        I don’t think that 2007 offense was the product of matching audio and visual info from opposing teams. I believe that offense was that good.
