Recap: Carolina vs. New Jersey

Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jaromir Jagr tallied a goal and an assist and moved his way up a few of the NHL's all-time lists as the New Jersey Devils defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 2-1, on Monday.

Jagr passed Marcel Dionne for sole possession of fifth place on the NHL's all-time points list with 1,772. The Czech superstar also became the 15th player to skate in his 1,500th career game.

"This is all special," Devils head coach Pete DeBoer said of Jagr. "You might not ever see this again."

Adam Henrique netted the game-winning goal and Cory Schneider was spectacular, stopping 39-of-40 shots fired his way for the Devils, who entered the game with losses in six of their last seven games.

Justin Faulk potted Carolina's lone goal and Cam Ward allowed both goals on 16 shots in his team's third straight loss.

"I don't think we worked hard enough to be rewarded tonight," said Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner.

After a scoreless first, the Hurricanes opened the scoring on Faulk's wrister from the high slot 7:11 into the middle stanza, but New Jersey responded with two goals.

Scott Gomez dished a pass from below the goal line to Jagr, who beat Ward with a quick shot from the slot for a tie game with 5:15 left in the second.

Jagr skated around the net, faked a wrap-around attempt and sent a pass to Henrique, who wristed a shot into a wide-open net on the power play with 14 seconds to go before the second intermission.

Schneider denied 17 Carolina shots in the third and fought off a late surge after the hosts pulled the goaltender to preserve the win.
