Jagr looks to reach the 30-goal mark for the 14th consecutive
season - one shy of Mike Gartner's league record - when the New
York Rangers visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.
A nine-time All-Star and five-time Art Ross Trophy winner, Jagr
has 566 career goals to rank 17th all-time. He needs two
tallies to match his total of 2003-2004, when he split time
between the Rangers and Washington.
Jagr, who tops the NHL with 69 points, had a goal and an assist
for the Rangers in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.
Darius Kasparaitis did not play after suffering a pregame knee
injury for the Rangers, who are six points behind Philadelphia
in the race for first place in the Atlantic Division.
Although they are last in the league in goals (105), the Blue
Jackets have picked up the pace lately, scoring 18 in winning
three of their last four contests.
