Jaromir Jagr continued his march up the all-time NHL scoring list as the Florida Panthers edged the Vancouver Canucks 5-4 in a shoot-out in the NHL on Sunday.

Jagr scored his 732nd goal with 11.5 second remaining in the first period, sweeping an Aleksander Barkov cross-ice home, before the latter proved the shoot-out hero with the Panther's fifth goal.

The 43-year-old Jagr is now fourth on the NHL's all-time scoring list.

Vancouver took an early lead through Jannik Hansen, before Panther Shawn Thornton levelled the scores, with Canuck Sven Baertschi putting his side ahead only for Jagr to equalise.

Panthers pair Vincent Trocheck and Aaron Ekblad traded goals with Canucks Derek Dorsett and Daniel Sedin in the second period to force the shoot-out.

Shoot-outs were the order of the day after the Boston Bruins prevailed 2-1 against the New Jersey Devils.

Ryan Spooner netted the crucial goal for the Bruins, after a first-period goal from team-mate Loui Eriksson had been cancelled out by Devils captain Andy Greene.

Stanley Cup champions the Chicago Blackhawks were 4-3 winners over the San Jose Sharks in overtime.

Jonathan Toews got the winner after a third-period effort from Andrew Shaw forced an additional period.

The Sharks battled from 1-0 down to take a 2-1 lead through Joonas Donskoi and Tommy Wingels, but Patrick Kane scored late to ensure the teams finished the first period at 2-2.

Joe Pavelski restored the Sharks' lead in the second period, though Shaw restored parity at 6:51 into the third.

Elsewhere, the Tampa Bay Lightning accounted for the visiting Ottawa Senators 5-2, while the Detroit Red Wings proved too good for the Calgary Flames 4-2.

The New York Rangers were outplayed at home by the Washington Capitals, who triumphed 7-3.
