Video: Jagr scores historic game-winning goal for Devils (Updated)

Oct 29, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

Jaromir Jagr just keeps on scoring goals, even at the age of 41.

Jagr scored his third goal of the season on Tuesday, as the New Jersey Devils defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning by a final score of 2-1 on the NHL on NBCSN. All three goals came in the second period.

For Jagr, his goal was historic. According to Rich Chere of the New Jersey Star-Ledger, Jagr broke Phil Esposito’s all-time game-winning goal mark. Jagr’s goal gives him 119 game winners over the course of his career.

UPDATE: Jagr passed Esposito for second all-time in career game-winning goals, but still trails Gordie Howe’s 121 for first all-time.

    If you’re going to score a historic goal might as well make it a breakaway.

    Slowest breakaway I have ever seen. That might make it even more awesome.

      Looked like Herman Munster going down the ice. In fairness to Jagr, he’s never been fast… and that’s never slowed him down.

        Well, as it turned out, it was not a historic goal as far as game winning goals. However, the good news is, I believe it was the slowest breakaway goal on record. We may never see a slower breakaway goal.

    I thought Gordie Howe had the record?

    • sheapuck - Oct 30, 2013 at 7:08 AM

      He does … 121

      Yes…Gordie Howe does have it (prior to the modern day era).

      However Jagr is only a few behind, which I think he could break the record this year,
