@flapanthers at Avs after SO loss to Jets; @68Jagr Assist is 100th pt with Cats and career point 1884, needs 3 to tie Messier

DENVER–The Florida Panthers came from behind early, then lost a  third period lead before falling in a shootout 4-3 Thursday night at Winnipeg. The Cats are 0-1-1 on the trip and hope to salvage the last game of the three-game road trip tonight against the Avalanche in Denver.

Today’s highlights package from NHL.com includes stories, highlights and a great photo gallery with lots of photos of Jaromir Jagr. The legend had an assist on the first of three Panthers power play goals. It was Jagr’s 100th point with the Florida Panthers and the 1884th career point of his NHL career. He needs three points to tie Mark Messier and then one more to become the NHL’s second all time leading scorer. Follow the link to nhl.com.
