LOS ANGELES -- Jaromir Jagrs second clutch goal in two nights gave the New Jersey Devils a fortunate win after they were held to 15 shots by the Los Angeles Kings. Jagr tied Gordie Howes NHL record of 121 game-winning goals by scoring 2:30 into overtime, and Cory Schneider made 34 saves to lead the Devils over the Kings 2-1 on Thursday. "We were outplayed and outshot. We shouldnt have been in the game," Jagr said. "But Cory was excellent and he kept us in the game -- especially in the first period. We should probably have lost 5-0." Jagr extended his league record for overtime goals to 18. It was his 690th overall, pulling the 41-year-old into a tie for ninth overall with former Penguins teammate Mario Lemieux. "I learned so many things from him. There arent many people lucky to play with the best player in the world," Jagr said. "I tell all the young kids, When you have a chance when you come into the league and you play with the best player in the world, watch him because you can learn a lot. I was pretty lucky to see him at his best." The Devils won in overtime for the second straight night and are 9-4-2 following an 0-4-3 start. They beat Anaheim 4-3 on Wednesday after Jagr scored the tying goal with 61 seconds left in regulation. The Devils made their first visit to Staples Center since June 11, 2012, the night the Kings beat them 6-1 to win the Stanley Cup. Last Friday, the Kings won 2-0 in New Jersey. Jagr received a holding penalty 17 seconds into overtime, but Kings captain Dustin Brown also was sent off for diving on the play -- leaving the teams to skate 3-on-3. "With all respect to Brown, I am not that strong, so I think he acted a little bit," Jagr said. "I grabbed him and held him, but I am not The Terminator." Just 13 seconds after the penalties expired, Jagr got a cross-ice pass in the low slot from Marek Zidlicky and tucked his ninth goal of the season past Ben Scrivens. "I dont know too many other players that would have had the patience to hold it and hold it that extra second. You cant teach that. Thats why hes a Hall of Fame player," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "Its amazing what he is doing at his age, with the minutes we are loading him up with and the responsibilities we are asking of him. He played against (Anze) Kopitars line all night. Hes been incredible." The Kings were outshooting the Devils 29-6 when Ryan Carter put a high backhander past Scrivens stick at 5:52 of the third period with defenceman Willie Mitchell screening his goalie. But the Kings pulled even 65 seconds later when Kopitars 20-foot wrist shot banked off Schneiders left arm and Justin Williams tapped in the loose puck. "I thought Ryans goal would be enough," said Schneider, who stopped a breakaway by Trevor Lewis with less than 2 minutes left in the first period. "Unfortunately we gave it right back about a minute later, but we stuck with it. We didnt get down on ourselves." The injury-depleted Kings, playing without Jeff Carter, Kyle Clifford, defenceman Matt Greene and goalie Jonathan Quick, outshot the Devils 27-5 through the first two periods. At that point, New Jerseys defencemen were outshooting the forwards 3-2. "Im happy with the effort, but not the result," Scrivens said. "We generated our fair share of chances, but we ran into a hot goalie. Schneider played a great one tonight." Lewis, still looking for his first goal of the season, stole the puck from Michael Ryder at the Kings blue line and beat him all the way down the ice before Schneider made the save on his knees with 1:53 left in the first. "We definitely got lots of shots and opportunities, but we didnt bear down on them," Kopitar said. "That was the key to their success." The Kings were 0 for 4 on the power play against the leagues least-penalized team. The Devils were 0 for 2 with the man advantage.

With timely hitting and good pitching, the Marlins are one win away from sweeping the slumping Houston Astros. Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run double, and Jordany Valdespin added a two-run home run to power the Marlins to a 7-3 victory over Houston on Saturday night. Stantons double in the second inning broke a 2-2 tie. Christian Yelich had two hits, including an RBI single as part of the four-run frame. Valdespin hit his first homer of the season in the ninth off Chad Qualls. The Marlins have won six of seven. "To come here and to keep going and to keep competing and keeping that good feeling going, Im very happy," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "Were going to be tested. A lot of good teams left to play and a lot of ground to make up, but Im very happy with where were at right now." Stanton said a sweep against the Astros would put the Marlins in a good position. "We have to get sweeps in series like this," Stanton said. "You always say you sweep guys like this, and you stay afloat against the guys on the top. A sweep is three games gained instead of one." The Marlins were able to capitalize on starter Jarred Cosarts wildness when he walked the bases loaded in the second, setting up the run-scoring hits by Yelich and Stanton. "Its just who is able to capitalize the most is who is able to stay afloat and win games," Stanton said. "You arent always going to be able to capitalize, but the more you do, the more you are going to be in good shape. Weve been doing all right lately." Tom Koehler (7-7) gave up three runs and nine hits with two strikeouts in five innings. "I walked that tight rope that whole day and fortunately enough, I stayed balanced enough to get through five," Koehler said. "I handed it over to the bullpen who did a great job." Jason Castro had two hits, including a two-run home run in the first that put the Astros up 2-1. Jose Altuve added three hits for Houston, which lost its fourth straight and fell a season-high 20 games below .500 (42-62). Cosart (9-7) allowed five runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and four walks in 5 2-3 innings.ddddddddddddThe right-hander has struggled in July, allowing 21 runs in 21 1-3 innings over four starts. "Tale of two innings, obviously," Cosart said. "Pretty self-explanatory. Its the same as always when I have a bad game. I just didnt throw strikes." Carter cut the lead to 5-3 with an RBI single in the fifth. Casey McGehee gave Miami a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first. Houston left runners in scoring position in each inning from the second to the seventh. Altuve and Marwin Gonzalez started the third with singles before Carter lined a ball to Koehler that went off the right-handers back and was caught by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria. Koehler struck out Castro and Matt Dominguez to end the inning. "It was kind of weird," Koehler said of the out. "It used my back as a ramp to get to (Hechavarria). We looked, and after icing my shoulder, my shoulder was redder than my back. There is not really proof that I got hit, which is good." The Astros went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position against Koehler and finished 1 for 12 overall. "We had some opportunities and, you know, had the right guys out there," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "We hit one line drive off the pitchers back or shoulder and the short stop catches the ball. Its just one of those things. We had some opportunities. We were just not able to get the big hit." NOTES: After the game, Houston placed RHP Josh Zeid on the disabled list with a left foot injury. The Astros also optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Oklahoma City to work on his fastball command, Porter said. LHP Brett Oberholtzer will start in Peacocks place Monday against Oakland. ... Houston RHP Collin McHugh will be activated from the disabled list to start on Sunday. McHugh, 4-8 with a 3.28 ERA, has been out since July 7 because of an injury to his right middle finger. McHugh, who last started in the majors on July 6 in a loss at the Los Angeles Angels, threw five innings in a rehab outing Tuesday for Oklahoma City. Miami will start RHP Jacob Turner, 3-6 with a 6.03 ERA. ... Gonzalez returned to the lineup after missing Fridays game because of soreness in his right hamstring.
