Jaromir Jagr delivers as Stars down Oilers in OT

When it comes to delivering in overtime, nobody has done it better in NHL history than Jaromir Jagr and he did it again Wednesday, scoring 1:46 into the extra period to lift the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory in Edmonton. It was an NHL-record 17th overtime goal for Jagr.

“When I was younger, the longer the game goes the stronger I am going to feel,” the 40-year-old Jagr said. “I always felt third period, overtime I am the strongest and I tried to take advantage. This is not right now, kind of lucky right now.”

It was a little more than luck Wednesday night. He picked up the rebound of a Jamie Benn shot along the right boards, slipped around Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney and then ripped a shot past Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk.

“I tried to beat the guy one-on-one and shot it right away,” Jagr said. “I still have to get used to it, the European rink is big and you have so much time. Here it is totally different, you have to shoot it right away.”

It wasn’t the only big play of the night for Jagr, who set up a second period goal that tied the game at 1-1. Ten minutes after the Oilers had taken the lead on an Ales Hemsky goal, Jagr skated along the left boards, controlling the puck with one hand on his stick and using the other to hold off Oilers defenseman Ladislav Smid, before turning and centering the puck to Benn, who scored from the slot.
