It's hard to believe this guy is 40 years old. He's certainly not showing it.
Dallas Stars winger Jaromir Jagr ended the Edmonton Oilers's bid at a comeback win with his NHL-record 17th overtime goal just 1:46 into overtime to give the Stars a 3-2 win. The NHL legend picked up the puck in the corner, waited for Ryan Whitney to make a move for the puck and then turned him into a corkscrew as he deked past and netted the game-winner with a snap shot. Icing on the cake was his "shhh" gesture to the suddenly dead silent Edmonton crowd.
The fact that the Jamie Benn-Jaromir Jagr pairing is just now starting to click and their team is finally getting healthy has to be a good feeling for Stars fans. Benn and Derek Roy both potted goals tonight, and Jagr's winner secured a promising win for this squad.
With his 668th career goal, Jagr is now tied with Luc Robitaille for 10th all-time and could conceivably end up even higher up the list by the end of the season.
Meanwhile, no need to "shh" us, Jaromir. We know.
