SUNRISE — Jaromir Jagr scored two goals, including the winner in the third period, and Al Montoya made 38 saves as the streaking Panthers beat the Wild 2-1 Sunday.
The victory was the ninth in a row for Florida and seventh straight at home, both franchise records. The nine-game winning streak ties the Canadiens, Capitals and Rangers for the longest in the league this season.
Florida also extended its lead in the Atlantic Division over the idle Canadiens to three points.
Jagr, 43, extended his NHL record with his 132nd career winning goal.
"Sometimes you don't have your best game, but you just have to find a way to do it," Jagr said. "I didn't feel good about my game (Saturday night against the Rangers, a 3-0 win). I just wanted to make sure it went better (Sunday)."
Jagr has 735 goals, six behind Brett Hull for third on the league's career list.
His first goal came 27 seconds into the game, making him one of three players to score in the opening minute of a game in multiple games this season, Elias Sports said. He has done it twice, along with Zucker and the now-retired Pascal Dupuis of the Penguins.
In the 24 hours preceding Saturday's game, Panthers owners Doug Cifu and Vinnie Viola doled out contract extensions to general manager Dale Tallon and coach Gerard Gallant that should keep them together through the 2018-19 season.
The weekend had the feel of 1996, when the Panthers owned South Florida.
"We're a long way from that," Gallant said Saturday of the Panthers' run to the Stanley Cup final. "It's a lot of fun, and the crowd's into the game. The team's playing really well. It's awesome and couldn't go any better for us now. We got to keep playing."
Game highlights: Kyle Okposo had two goals and an assist, Cal Clutterbuck scored twice and the host Islanders beat the league-leading Stars 6-5. … Corey Crawford made 26 saves in his NHL-leading sixth shutout to lead the host Blackhawks past the Senators 3-0 for their third straight win.
