The mood is casual, the strides unhurried as the Pittsburgh Penguins glide onto the ice. It's just another practice and as the players skate around the frigid rink, they yawn and stretch, regaining the feel of ice beneath their feet. Another day, another set of boring drills--until Jaromir Jagr emerges from the dressing room to break the monotony. His long, curly hair stirring in the breeze created by 20 moving bodies, Jagr joins the circle of skaters.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the last week: + Jaromir Jagr on Saturday became the seventh NHL player to score 700 goals. The New Jersey Devils' enduring right wing joins Wayne Gretzky (894), Gordie Howe (801), Brett Hull (741), Marcel Dionne (731), Phil Esposito (717) and Mike Gartner (708) in the 700-goal club. + The Winnipeg Jets are 11-3-1 under Coach Paul Maurice, who replaced the fired Claude Noel. Their revival was well-timed - fans had become impatient with a team that seemed bound for another non-playoff finish, ending the love affair that began when the Jets moved to Winnipeg from Atlanta.

Mario Lemieux, make some room for another ageless wonder, 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr. New Jersey's Jagr scored a milestone and game-winning goal in overtime in the Devils' 2-1 victory over the Kings on Thursday night at Staples Center, handing the Kings and goalie Ben Scrivens their first loss in five games. Overtime and open ice were the perfect recipe for the dynamic Jagr, who, with his 690th career goal in the NHL, tied the retired legend Lemieux for ninth-place all-time. It came shortly after Jagr exited the penalty box - the Kings and Devils put on an entertaining stretch of three-on-three action when Jagr and Kings captain Dustin Brown went off just 17 seconds into overtime.

Jaromir Jagr joined the Washington Capitals for Tuesday's game in Toronto but said he probably will be out two weeks with a right knee strain. He first injured his knee Oct. 10 and came back only to hurt it again. "Before, when I was playing, I wasn't completely healthy and you see what happened--I'm out again," Jagr said. "I'm not saying it's worse than it was before, but it's not good either.

This goaltending duel started off rather quietly. Then, with time, it gradually got better and hit another level by the start of the third period in the Dallas Stars' eventual 2-0 victory against the Kings at Staples Center. The way Kings goalie Jonathan Quick and his Stars counterpart Kari Lehtonen were playing, it looked as if a fluke moment might decide Thursday's game. How about a combination of individual brilliance and a deflection off a skate? Dallas received both in the form of legendary goal-scorer Jaromir Jagr's backhander that went off the skate of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty past Quick, at 6 minutes 34 seconds of the third period.

Within a matter of hours, free-agent forwards Jaromir Jagr and Maxime Talbot signed deals with the Atlantic Division champions. Jagr, 39, a 1990 first-round pick of the Penguins, got a one-year deal worth $3.3 million, and Talbot, 27, signed a five-year deal worth $9 million. Jagr had a $2-million offer from the Penguins on the table all week, before Penguins General Manager Ray Shero withdrew it Friday morning.
