Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player to score 700 NHL goals, sparking New Jersey's four-goal second period, and Martin Brodeur earned the win in his first start in over a month as the Devils routed the New York Islanders 6-1 on Saturday.

Jagr gave the Devils a 2-0 lead early in the second, and Ryane Clowe, Marek Zidlicky, and Mark Fayne followed in rapid succession. The four goals came in a span of 4:36 in the first 8:07 of the second.

Adam Henrique opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 5:00 of the first. New Jersey needed only 12 shots to net its first four goals and 16 total to get to five against beleaguered goalie Evgeni Nabokov. Clowe and Zidlicky, with a milestone assist from Jagr, also tallied during power plays.
