"I don't really chase anything," Jagr said. "I enjoy my teammates and my linemates. I enjoy the game, the way we play. Our line, I like the way our line played. When I'm happy about our game, I know the goals are going to come.
"That's why I don't really worry about it," he added. "If there's no chances to score goals, then I would start worrying about it."
There certainly were plenty of them late in this game.
"This game's all about consistency," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "If you're going to go out and not play 60 (minutes) and just a couple guys are passengers ... you're not going to win the majority of hockey games. And we didn't have enough from a few guys and ... a chain reaction, it costs you in other parts."
Cory Schneider stopped 16 shots in his first start since Nov. 21 for New Jersey. Cam Ward made 26 saves in his fourth straight start for the Hurricanes.
The Devils trailed 2-1 entering the final period before the goals came in bunches.
"They wore us down late in the game," Muller said, "and it cost us."
Loktionov tied it with 11:17 left when his shot trickled past Ward. After a hooking penalty to Carolina's Riley Nash, Henrique won an offensive-zone draw before chipping in the rebound of Eric Gelinas' shot high past Ward to make it 3-2.
Zubrus then redirected a slap shot from Jon Merrill 1:50 later to put the Devils up by two goals. Jagr finished the scoring with his 36th career goal against the Carolina/Hartford franchise.
"You have to keep the faith," Jagr said. "We just had to battle through it and hope Ward's not going to make all the saves."
That huge third came after the Hurricanes -- who scored three goals in the second period of a 4-3 win over New Jersey two nights earlier -- struck twice in the middle period Friday.
Skinner tied it at 1-all 1:53 into the second when he whipped the rebound of Ryan Murphy's shot past Schneider.
Then, after a melee in front of Ward created a 4-on-4 situation, Justin Faulk found Staal behind the Devils' defensemen at the blue line. Staal beat Schneider low to his glove side on the breakaway, giving Carolina its first lead at 6:34.
That came after Fayne gave the Devils a 1-0 lead when he scored his first goal of the season with 1:40 left in the first. He fired a loose puck that beat a screened Ward high.
"I liked our game right from the drop of the puck," DeBoer said. "I thought we had good energy, good legs. We created a lot of things. ... We found our game again in the third."
The Devils activated D Anton Volchenkov from injured reserve before the game and had him in the lineup. ... Carolina D Mike Komisarek was in the lineup for just the seventh time this season and first since Nov. 18. ... Gelinas rang the left post with a slap shot with about 14 minutes left in the second -- seconds before the dust-up in front of Ward.
