Capitals cruise to 12-2 win

©Associated Press
January 12, 2003

WASHINGTON -- Jaromir Jagr had three goals and four assists to match his career high with seven points as the Capitals beat the Florida Panthers 12-2 on Saturday night.

Jagr had his first multigoal game of the season and his 10th career hat trick, his first since March 10, 2001, with Pittsburgh. His other seven-point game was Dec. 30, 1999, for the Penguins against the Islanders.

Selected as a starter for the Eastern Conference All-Star team earlier in the day, Jagr tied the Capitals' record for points, set by Dino Ciccarelli on March 18, 1989, against Hartford.

Kip Miller had a career-high four assists for the Capitals, who equaled the franchise record for goals in a game set in a 12-2 victory over Quebec on Feb. 6, 1990.

STARS 6, AVALANCHE 3: Bill Guerin and Mike Modano set each other up for early goals as host Dallas stretched its unbeaten streak to nine. Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy gave up four goals for a third straight game and was pulled after two periods. Stars defenseman Richard Matvichuk broke a bone in his left leg and will be out four to six weeks.

FLYERS 3, RED WINGS 2: Michal Handzus had a goal and an assist to lead host Philadelphia to its sixth straight win. Jeremy Roenick and Radovan Somik also scored for the Flyers. Henrik Zetterberg and Brett Hull scored for Detroit.

RANGERS 3, PENGUINS 1: Petr Nedved scored two goals in his first game back from a hip injury, and Mike Dunham made 27 saves as New York snapped its eight-game road losing streak to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's Mario Lemieux missed his second game with a groin injury.

BRUINS 6, MAPLE LEAFS 2: Glen Murray scored the tie-breaking goal 5:44 into the third and assisted on two late scores as host Boston snapped a five-game losing streak. The victory was the third in 15 games for the Bruins (3-11-1), and Toronto lost its third in its past 11 (7-2-1-1).

SABRES 3, CANADIENS 2: Stu Barnes had a goal and an assist, and Martin Biron made 25 saves for visiting Buffalo. The Sabres have won four of five but have just four wins in 21 road games.

ISLANDERS 7, THRASHERS 3: Jason Blake had his first three-goal game and added an assist for host New York. Chris Osgood, who had 29 saves, is unbeaten in nine games (7-0-2-0).

PREDATORS 4, COYOTES 3 (OT): Scott Walker scored his second goal of the game 37 seconds into overtime for host Nashville. Phoenix's Paul Mara forced overtime, scoring from the slot with 1:14 left.

JACKETS 7, FLAMES 2: Lasse Pirjeta had his second career multigoal game and defenseman Derrick Walser had three assists as visiting Columbus won its third in a row for the first time in team history.
