Jagr ties Lemieux on for 10th on all-time assists list
NEWARK, N.J. — Jaromir Jagr set up two goals and tied former Penguins teammate Mario Lemieux for 10th on the NHL's career assists list Friday as the New Jersey Devils beat Washington, 2-1, handing the fading Capitals their seventh straight loss.
Stephen Gionta and Adam Henrique scored, and Cory Schneider continued his stellar play in net, stopping 30 shots to give New Jersey its second straight win.
The two assists for Jagr, 41, gave him 1,033 in his 20-year NHL career. He is seven behind Marcel Dionne for the ninth.
Jason Chimera scored for the Capitals, whose seven-game slide is their longest since late 2010.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
