Jokinen and Smith join a rare club: 3 points vs Isles and still lose

Jussi Jokinen (1-2-3) and Reilly Smith (2-1-3) each with three points last night.  They are the first players with 3 points vs. Isles in a losing playoff effort since Kevin Stevens and Mario Lemieux each had three points in game 6 vs Pit in 1993.  (Had happened in 12 different games by 16 players since then)

They are also the first Panthers to have 3 points in a losing playoff game. (Six had done in 5 different wins for Florida)

42 players had at least three points in a game in last year's playoffs.  Only one (Joel Otto vs NYR) did so in a game his team lost.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
