MONTREAL — New Jersey forward Jaromir Jagr scored a milestone goal as the Devils knocked off Montreal 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Jagr moved into sole possession of seventh place on the NHL all-time goals list Tuesday with No. 695 of his career, breaking a tie with Mark Messier with a goal 17:23 into the game.

Jagr maneuvered into the faceoff circle to goalie Carey Price’s left and shot through several bodies into the net.

Jagr passed Mario Lemieux for seventh place on the league’s all-time points list with an assist Friday for No. 1,724.

Eric Gelinas, Adam Henrique and Dainius Zubrus also scored for the Devils. Max Pacioretty had the lone goal for the Canadiens.

Lightning 2, Rangers 1

NEW YORK — Victor Hedman and Nikita Kucherov scored nine seconds apart early in the second period, and Ben Bishop made 33 saves in his return from injury as Tampa Bay cooled off New York.

Hedman got the Lightning even with a power-play goal and Kucherov gave them the lead for good on a breakaway. Tampa Bay went 5-3 in a stretch in which it played seven of eight on the road.

Brad Richards scored for the Rangers, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves, but took the loss for New York, which was 8-2-1 in its previous 11.

Maple Leafs 4, Bruins 3

BOSTON — Tyler Bozak scored twice, Phil Kessel had three assists and Toronto held off Boston.

Jonathan Bernier made 38 saves for the Maple Leafs, including 15 in the third period as the Bruins tried to rally after allowing three straight goals.

James van Riemsdyk’s goal a minute into the third put Toronto up 4-2, and the Maple Leafs held on despite getting outshot 41-26.

Jake Gardiner also scored for Toronto.

Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron each had a goal and an assist for Boston. Gregory Campbell pulled the Bruins to 4-3 with 10:25 left in the third period, but Bernier stopped a late flurry of shots after Boston pulled goalie Tuukka Rask for the extra skater.
