OTTAWA–First place Florida’s four-game win streak ended with a 3-1 loss at Ottawa Thursday night. Jaromir Jagr had the only goal for the Panthers, his 27th of the season and the 749 of his career.

The Jagr goal also produced the 1867th point of the legend’s career and his chase for the second all-time slot held by Mark Messier with 1887 and also 1900 points will have to wait until next season, hopefully as a Florida Panther.
