Jaromir Jagr continued his climb up the record books as he scored twice on Saturday (February 20) to move into third place all-time on the NHL's career goals scored list.

The 44-year-old Czech tied Brett Hull's 741 goals in the second period then delivered his 742nd in the third when he tallied a loose puck in front of the net.

His scores helped the Florida Panthers (34-18-7, 75 points) take a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets (25-29-4, 54 points).

Playing in the 22nd season of his decorated career, Jagr now has 20 goals on the season and trails only Gordie Howe (801) and Wayne Gretzky (894) on the all-time list.

Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo earned his 25th win of the season with a 29 save effort while the Jets Michael Hutchinson took the loss after allowing all three goals on 32 Florida shots.
