The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - January 15th, 2014

Jonathan Daniel

Jagr is making his ways higher into the record books.  Rather incredible when you think about the fact that he played for  a number years overseas after his start in the NHL.

Jaromir Jagr moved into seventh place all-time in NHL goals and Martin Brodeur made 29 saves as the New Jersey Devils downed the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 on Tuesday night.

The 41-year-old Jagr got his 695th goal in his 1,438th career game, moving him past Mark Messier. On Saturday, he passed former Pittsburgh Penguins’ teammate Mario Lemieux for seventh place in points with 1,724.

The Thirty Thoughts are always good, but this time I giggled.

6. Asked one NHL owner how he would deal with a hugely disappointed Martin St. Louis if the star winger was a member of his team. "First thing I would do is say, 'You've got four points in three games since this happened. We're very lucky to have such a professional lead us,'" he said. "I would tell him that no matter what happened with Canada, we will always appreciate everything he does. He's going to be a part of our organization forever, with his number retired. And I'd tell him that I'm not trading him no matter what."

7. He paused and laughed. "Then, I'd buy him a new car, buy his wife anything she wants and send the family on an all-expenses paid trip to wherever they want to go."


NHL.com 's recap of the game.

Varlamov stopped 46 of the 48 shots he faced, didn't allow Chicago (30-8-11) to score on five power plays and held off the Blackhawks long enough for Tyson Barrie to end it 4:09 into OT with his second goal of the game.

"He's been like this since the start of the year," the Avalanche's first-year coach, said of Varlamov. "He's been outstanding. We rally around him and that was the type of performance we needed from our goalie to beat the Blackhawks."

That's because the Avalanche (29-12-5) are dealing with a rash of injuries. They came into the came with four players on injured reserve and also didn't have backup goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere (back) or center Paul Stastny (leg), each believed to be day-to-day.
