Czech-ing on The Golden Brett

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Jaromir Jagr scored two goals, in­clud­ing the gamewin­ner in the third pe­riod, and Al Mon­toya made 38 saves as the streak­ing Florida Pan­thers beat the Min­nesota Wild 2-1 on Sun­day. “Some­times you don’t have your best game, but you just have to find a way to do it,” Jagr said af­ter scor­ing his NHL-record 132nd game-win­ning goal. “I didn’t feel good about my game (last night). I just wanted to make sure it went bet­ter to­day.” The 43-year-old Jagr, a Czech repub­lic na­tive, has 735 goals, six be­hind Brett Hull for third on the league’s ca­reer list. The vic­tory was the ninth in a row for Florida and sev­enth straight at home, both fran­chise records. The nine-game win­ning streak ties Mon­treal, Wash­ing­ton and the New York Rangers for the long­est in the NHL this sea­son.
