Rangers Jaromir Jagr in his home weekend recorded a perfect game. He showed off his playmaking side by spending the first 20 games of the season reintroducing the NHL to his scoring touch. He broke a third-period tie with his 19th goal and established two others in the Rangers' 3-2 victory over Boston, which was the Bruins' sixth straight loss. Jagr always had more assists than goals. He moved into an 18th-place tie with John Bucyk on the NHL list with 556 goals. Truly a goal-scorer Jagr has rediscovered his game and drive in his first full season in New York. He is scoring goals, setting them up, and even acting as a forechecker. He is a terrific playmaker, who is most appreciated for the times when he had to be the first forechecker in, and had to be the first forward back. The Bruins (7-10-5) played hard but it wasn't enough to keep them from their first six-game losing streak. The Rangers have never headed and won for the seventh time in 10 games.
