With his third period goal off of his own rebound, Jaromir Jagr has moved into a tie for the eighth most goals in NHL history. The 41-year-old Czech native ties former Red Wing Steve Yzerman at 692 career goals.

Jagr needs just two more goals to move into seventh place, alongside Mark Messier.?

Not so long ago, the Devils put together a string of games that saw them post 20 goals in a seven game span, which was an average of 2.86 goals per game. Now, this team has struggled to score, tallying just four goals over their last three games, two of which have been losses.

Aside from Jaromir Jagr and more recently, Patrik Elias, and to some extent Ryan Carter, the Devils have struggled to score. With the goaltending turning in a strong performance almost every night, it's almost safe to say that two goals may get this team at least a point in more games than not. Scoring that second and even a third goal, has been a major struggle as of late.

After last night's win against the Kings, it's time to take another peek at some advanced stats.

The stat I like to use is CorsiOn, which is basically a formula that combines all shots directed towards the net in the offensive zone versus shots towards the net in the defensive zone while each player is on the ice.

There's no doubt that the Devils have struggled to score when Cory Schneider is in the net. Just how much different is the scoring in front of Brodeur and Schneider?

Cory Schneider?

The eye test surely tells the story of the Devils struggles without?Patrik Elias?and?Travis Zajac?in the lineup.

To no surprise, the Corsi numbers back up that claim, as Elias and Zajac are one and two respectively on the team in on ice-Corsi rating.

It's time to dive into some advanced stats with the hope of making sense of the putrid 1-5-3 start to the season.

The main stat we're using here is Corsi On, which is directly defining the number of shots created versus shots against.

1 -?Number of points New Jersey earned while on its six-game "losing streak." I guess we all can thank Gary Bettman for that!
