The 41-year-old Jagr got his 695th goal in his 1,438th career game. On Saturday, he passed former Pittsburgh Penguins’ teammate Mario Lemieux for seventh place in points with 1,724.

Goals less than three minutes apart early in the second period from Eric Gelinas and Adam Henrique were the difference as the Devils extended their points streak to five games and picked up a win against a team ahead of them in the Eastern Conference. Dainius Zubrus added an empty-net goal on an assist from Jagr.

Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal in the first period.

AVALANCHE 3, BLACKHAWKS 2, OT

CHICAGO • Tyson Barrie scored his second goal of the game on a power play at 4:09 of overtime to lift Colorado past Chicago.

With Jonathan Toews off for hooking, Barrie beat Corey Crawford with a one-timer from the left circle after taking a cross-ice pass from Matt Duchene to give Colorado its second straight win. The Avalanche improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games despite being outshot 48-26.

Barrie and Ryan O’Reilly scored 1:02 apart late in the first period.

PREDATORS 4, FLAMES 2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. • Ryan Ellis ended a 42-game scoring drought by notching the first of Nashville’s three third-period goals and added an assist to lead the Predators over Calgary.

Shea Weber scored in the first period, Craig Smith and Viktor Stalberg followed Ellis with goals in the third, and David Legwand had three assists to help Nashville snap a three-game losing streak. Carter Hutton stopped 22 shots for the Predators.

Lee Stempniak and Mikael Backlund scored and Karri Ramo made 30 saves for Calgary, which has lost four of its last five.

SHARKS 2, CAPITALS 1

WASHINGTON • Patrick Marleau scored the only goal of the shootout, lifting San Jose over Washington.

Antti Niemi stopped Eric Fehr, Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom in the shootout after making 35 saves in regulation and overtime. Marleau tallied after Joe Pavelski missed on San Jose’s first shot.
