Florida hosts Boston Monday as Jagr aims for career point 1851 to become third all-time.

CardPointBreakdown

Last week for Jagr…

The NHL awarded Jaromir Jagr an assist from the Saturday, Feb. 27 game against Columbus erroneously gave to a teammate.

The error was pointed out by JAGRometer.com and some of our viewers and our effort to correct it caught the attention of Denik Sport, a Czech newspaper. (Full Disclosure–the NHL did not respond directly other than an automatically generated e-mail that they would get back to us. In the end, the right thing was done. They had no choice–their own video consclusively confirmed our assertation).

The correction came after Jagr scored his 21st goal of the season. After the correction, This made his 743rd career goal the 1849th point, extending his NHL record for game winning goals to 133.

The stage was set for Jagr’s next milestone:   Tie Gordie Howe’s 1850 points  for third all-time. It came March 3 in the Mile High City of Denver when Jagr assisted on  Eric Gudbranson’s goal  in a 3-2 loss to Colorado. Here’s the NHL.com video of Point 1850 for Jagr.

Also revealed last week was Jagr was drinking 10 cups of coffee a day, which he gave up for Lent. His production is increasing and he looks as dominant as he has in any time in the last 10 years. There’s a story on that later in this edition of Jagrometer.com

This week for Jagr and the Florida Panthers

Can the BB&T Center and the return of some injured players turn around the bad effects of the 1-3-1 road trip? With Jonathon Huberdeau expected back in the lineup Monday against Boston, the Florida Panthers hope reuniting him with Jagr and Aleksander Barkov has a ripple effect that rights the ship throughout the entire lineuip. The return of third/fourth line center Derek MacKenzie will also be welcome, if he is cleared to play.

This is a significant game for both teams as the second-place Panthers are only one point ahead of the third place Bruins.  The Panthers host Boston Monday, Ottawa Tuesday and Philadelphia Saturday at Sunrise. Tickets for these and all Florida Panthers home games can be secured through panthers.nhl.com.  Editor’s Note:  JAGRometer.com will be on site for the Thursday and Saturday games.

When will Jagr get career point 1851 to claim sole possession of third place on the all-time scoring list? He has scored 15 of his 21 goals at home. It could come this week and the Panthers will need continued production from their leading scorer to bolster their second place position in the Atlantic Division.

Harvey Fialkov reported comments from NHL Hall-of-Fame defenseman and Panthers TV color man Denis Potvin who compared Howe and Jagr.

With 17 games remaining the second place Panthers must regroup and start winning games or risk falling out of the playoffs.

What did you give up for Lent?

In some churches the sacrifice of something trivial is a practice that dates back many centuries. Last year Jagr gave up Diet Coke. This year it’s coffee. This article from a day before Jagr tied Gordie Howe for career points tells how this year Jagr have up his 10 cups of coffee a day AND increased his production in the weeks since then.

JAGR-REAGAN Connection

The death of Nancy Reagan, wife of deceased US President reminds us of a phone call a young Jagr had with the president. Thank to the editor of the Pittsburgh blog Emptynetters for sharing this article by Penguins historian Bob Grove from 1992.

Editor’s Note:  Also shared on Sunday. It took a long time, but by playing his 1612th NHL game against Arizona Saturday, Jagr has now spent an equal time as a Pittsburgh Penguin as he has playing for other NHL teams combined. A nice look back at the Jagr experience as a closing piece to go with the graphic that opened today’s edition of JAGRometer.com.

Jagr was the last player to head for the locker room after the loss Saturday night. We’ll see if some home cooking revives a team gasping for air for most of the last two weeks in Monday’s big game with Boston.

Some Jagr-related  social media accounts:

@68Jagr  This is the real site,  the one and only official Jaromir Jagr twitter account. Postings are rare, but worth the wait. Jagr has been more active on Twitter this season.

The two best Jagr facebook pages are:

https://www.facebook.com/68Jagr/?fref=ts

 This is the page Jagr posts on, if he is going to post at all.

Another good facebook page is one produced by someone in the Czech Republic. It has more than 100,000 likes. This is not the official page, but it is very good.

Since then, they convene at games in Western Canada and make a road trip or two every year, playing street hockey with locals, posing for hundreds of pictures, and having a good time with fans while honoring an all-time NHL legend.
