UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- Best known for helping the Pittsburgh Penguins win a pair of two Stanley Cup titles, Jaromir Jagr is on the verge of rewriting the New York Rangers' record book.

Jagr can set franchise single-season records for goals and points Wednesday when the Rangers visit the New York Islanders in their sixth meeting of the season.

The league's leading scorer, Jagr has 52 goals and can surpass Adam Graves' mark set in 1993-1994, the year of the Rangers' last Stanley Cup crown. His next point will be his 110th, which would break Hall of Famer Jean Ratelle's total from 1971-1972.

Netminder Henrik Lundqvist has 29 wins and can top Jim Henry and Hall of Famer Johnny Bower's record for victories by a Rangers rookie.

Jagr had a goal and an assist and Petr Sykora added the game-winner in Monday's shootout as the Rangers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to post a 5-4 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak and allowed the Rangers to take a two-point lead over Philadelphia for first place in the Atlantic Division.

The Islanders slipped 10 points behind Montreal for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot after Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Canadiens.

After losing the first two encounters to the Islanders this season, the Rangers have taken the last three, including a 5-2 triumph February 2.
