@FlaPanthers top Canes to end 3-game skid, one point behind Leafs for wild card; Jagr scores PPG

SUNRISE–The Florida Panthers 3-2 shootout win Tuesday night over the Carolina Hurricanes ended a three-game home losing streak.

Jaromir Jagr scored his 215th career power play goal and Vincent Trocheck scored his team-leading 22nd of the season to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead. The Hurricanes lulled the Panthers into a dull game, erasing Florida’s lead and nearly scored on a few good chances in the final minutes of regulation. Aleksander Barkov and Jonathon Huberdeau scored in the shootout after a scoreless overtime session to secure the victory for the Panthers. Florida plays Thursday in Philadelphia and close out a busy week at home Saturday against Dallas.

Jagr Points Since Age 40 Second Only to Gordie Howe

Jagr has now recorded 266 points since turning age 40 and needs two to tie Gordie Howe’s record of 268.
