SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Jaromir Jagr scored twice Saturday night to pass Brett Hull for third place on the NHL's career scoring list with 742 goals.

Jagr tied Hull when he redirected a centering pass from Dmitry Kulikov in the second period of the Florida Panthers' game against the Winnipeg Jets. He got his second goal late in the third period by finding a loose puck in front and flicking it in for a 3-1 lead.

Only Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801) have scored more NHL goals than Jagr. The 44-year-old Jagr has 20 goals in his 22nd NHL season.

Jagr also scored 66 goals during three seasons in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
