TORONTO -- Jaromir Jagr has impressed NHL great Mark Messier for more than a quarter of a century.When (Jagr) came into Pittsburgh he dazzled us with his power and his skill and his overall game, Messier said. Later on in his career hes kind of inspired us with his passion and dedication. Hes played long enough to understand what the game means to him as a person and as a player.Poised to be overtaken by the 44-year-old Jagr for second place on the NHL points list, Messier reflected Thursday about the Czech stars accomplishment in what has become increasingly a young mans game.The only way you can play, and do what hes doing right now, is to make sure you are putting in the time for your conditioning and taking care of yourself, Messier said. The game has to be the No. 1 priority in your life because it takes a lot time to prepare each and every game, let alone each and every season. Youve got to give Jaromir a lot of credit for what hes been able to do early in his career, and then maybe even more credit for how hes been able to sustain himself.Jagr has six goals and 10 assists this season for the Florida Panthers.Messier, who passed Gordie Howes point total of 1,850 for second place in his final NHL season back in 2003-04, finished with 1,887 points. Jagr grabbed third place from Howe in March and has 1,884 after assisting on a goal in Floridas 4-3 shootout loss at Winnipeg on Thursday night. Wayne Gretzky holds the record with 2,857.Im still the most surprised person that I have been sitting at No. 2 for this amount of time, Messier said on conference call. I didnt really consider myself an elite scorer like a Mario Lemieux or a Wayne Gretzky. I never considered myself that kind of player. It was quite humbling for me to be passing some of those names on that Top 10 list. I actually couldnt believe it.Jagr joined the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1990 and won two Stanley Cups alongside Lemieux. He has gone onto play for seven more NHL franchises, but also spent three seasons in the KHL where he amassed 146 points.Messier scored his 1,887 points in 1,756 NHL games, while Jagr has suited up 1,660 times in North America.This is kind of anticlimactic for me in a way, Messier said. I understand the amount of time he put in overseas. In my own mind he surpassed me a long time ago.Jagr has mused about playing until the age of 50. Messier retired at 44 -- the same as Jagr is now -- and said theres no sign Jagr is slowing down.Hes still hustling to get the puck and retrieve the puck, said Messier, who spent half a season as Jagrs teammate with the New York Rangers. Hes still covering a lot of ice when hes out there. Hes still very powerful.His down-low game, his cycle game, I dont know if theres been anyone ever better. As a superstar you think of a dynamic, open-ice player that can beat you one-on-one. He does that ... (just) in smaller areas.Messier has occupied the top of the points list with Gretzky, his friend and teammate with the Edmonton Oilers, for more than a decade, but added theres nothing bittersweet about Jagrs inevitable move into second.To be anywhere in that top echelon of players is incredible, Messier said. I look at it as an opportunity for me to pass the baton on to Jaromir and hopefully now with the rest of the players to inspire the next generation. Cheap Suns Jerseys . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. Womens Suns Jerseys . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. http://www.cheapsunsjerseyschina.com/ . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. Wholesale Suns Jerseys . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. Authentic Suns Jerseys . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. MINNEAPOLIS -- It looks as if the Minnesota Twins are finally coming around at the plate.Max Kepler homered twice and set a Twins rookie record by driving in seven runs, helping Minnesota rout the Texas Rangers 17-5 on Saturday.The Twins entered the game having scored the fewest runs in the American League. But they hit six homers last Sunday in a win at Yankee Stadium, and then they averaged five runs in a three-game series at the White Sox.And Saturday was pretty nice, too.Eduardo Nunez had four hits for the Twins, who scored at least three runs in four of the first five innings. Keplers second home run of the day capped a six-run fifth inning and gave the Twins a 17-4 lead.We know the struggles offensively arent going to be all year long, Nunez said. It has to change at some point.Texas right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez (0-1) recorded just two outs in his second start of the season. Gonzalez walked two batters and gave up two hits in Minnesotas four-run first. He also was hurt by poor defense, with misplays on three consecutive batters extending the inning.Rangers manager Jeff Banister pulled him after 38 pitches.You get into a situation like that -- young kid, could have pushed him to one more hitter, Banister said. Wherever that takes him, hes out of that game anyway. Im going to protect him.Cesar Ramos replaced Gonzalez and was charged with seven runs in 2 1/3 innings as the Twins worked their way through the Texas bullpen. The Rangers finally turned to backup catcher Bryan Holaday for the last four outs.Tyler Duffey (4-6) was the beneficiary of the outburst, pitching six innings for his second straight win. He gave up four runs and eight hits, including long home runs by Ryan Rua and Robinson Chirinos in the fourth inning.Minnesota slugger Miguel Sano launched a two-run drive into the second deck in left field in the second inning. His 12th homer of the season was his first since returning from a hamstring injury that sidelined him throughout June.Sano was one of three players who shared the previous team rookie record with six RBI. And apparently he wasnt eager to yield the title to Kepler.Sano was telling me during the game that he had eight, so I was a little bummed out about that, Kepler said.dddddddddddd. But everybody on the bench was like, `No he didnt.Im honored today to even have achieved something like that, Kepler added. But lets keep it going.SAN DIEGO BOUND?Nunez is making a strong argument for an invitation to his first All-Star Game. He led off the first and second with doubles, hit a sacrifice fly in the third inning and singled in the fifth and sixth. He is hitting a team-high .322 with 11 homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs scored and 18 stolen bases.But the seven-year veteran isnt letting the upcoming All-Star announcements distract him.I dont want to put anything in my mind yet, Nunez said. I have no control over that. The only control I have is to play well and do my thing and help the team to win.ROUGH STARTThe Rangers had a rocky first inning with fielding gaffes on three straight plays that led to four runs. With two on and one out, Gonzalez snagged Brian Doziers comebacker, but Rougned Odor dropped the throw to second base, erasing the chance for an inning-ending double play. Kepler then grounded softly to first baseman Mitch Moreland, who threw home too late to force Nunez.Finally, Eduardo Escobar hit a potential double-play grounder, but shortstop Elvis Andrus dropped Odors feed. He recovered in time to retire Kepler, but that opened the door for Juan Centenos two-run single.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: RHP Trevor May (back) pitched a scoreless inning for Triple-A Rochester in his injury rehab assignment on Friday. General manager Terry Ryan said that May would pitch again on Saturday night, his first time pitching on consecutive days since he was put on the DL on June 10. Ryan said May is relatively close to returning to the Twins 25-man roster. . SS Escobar left with a strained left hamstring. He is day to dayUP NEXTRangers LHP Cole Hamels has won four straight starts, giving up just two earned runs in 27 2/3 innings. Hell look to extend that streak on Sunday against Minnesotas Kyle Gibson, who earned his first win of the season on Tuesday. Gibson pitched seven innings in a 4-0 win over the White Sox.
