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.
