No surprise, I suppose, for Jagr

When it comes to milestone goals, New York's Jaromir Jagr must love playing the Tampa Bay Lightning.

One night after his first NHL team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, denied him the 600th goal of his career, Jagr's pouncing on a rebound just 1:43 into the game made the Rangers star just the 16th player in NHL history to achieve that feat.

Jagr's wrist shot past Tampa Bay's Johan Holmqvist, his ninth goal of the season, was his third career milestone goal against the Lightning. Jagr, then playing for the Washington Capitals, logged his 500th goal by completing a hat trick against the Lightning's John Grahame on Feb. 4, 2003. He scored his 300th career goal, playing for the Penguins, against the Lightning's Mark Fitzpatrick on April 15, 1998.
