NEW YORK (Ticker) -- Jaromir Jagr has been re-energized and has again shown the form that helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win two Stanley Cup championships.

Jagr gets to face his former team Monday when the New York Rangers take on the Penguins in their first meeting of the year.

In 11 seasons with the Penguins, Jagr won five Art Ross Trophies and the 1999 Hart Trophy. He helped lead them to championships in 1991 and 1992 and scored 429 goals, including a career-best 62 in 1995-1996.

This season, the 33-year-old Jagr has scored 14 goals and 23 points to rank among the league leaders in both categories. His performance is one reason why the Rangers are in first place in the Atlantic Division.

Rookie Petr Prucha and Blair Betts scored in regulation and Prucha notched the game-winner in a shootout Saturday to give the Rangers their second straight victory over the New Jersey Devils, a 3-2 triumph.

After opening the season with nine losses, Pittsburgh has shown signs of improvement with three victories in their last five contests.

Mark Recchi scored twice and Lasse Pirjeta added another Saturday as the Penguins saw a two-game winning streak end with a 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Pittsburgh will likely be without veteran John LeClair, who suffered a fractured cheekbone during warmups Saturday when he was hit near his right eye with the puck.
