Life has been pretty exciting for the Florida Panthers lately.
They won their franchise-record ninth straight game on Sunday, sit in first place in the Atlantic Division and have even been filling the BB&T Center lately.
The excitement continued when 43-year-old Jaromir Jagr scored his first of two goals in a 2-1 Panthers win against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday. Arley Londono, the Panthers’ Spanish-language broadcaster on ESPN Deportes, didn’t hold back... at all.
Combining his NHL and KHL stats, Jagr’s two goals were the 800th and 801st of his storied career, and his 735th and 736th in the NHL. He is now five goals behind Brett Hull for third place on the NHL’s all-time goal-scoring list, and 20 points behind Gordie Howe for third in career points.
