Thanks, Mario

No one has averaged as many career points per game as Mario
Lemieux (2.01), and no one has benefited more from Lemieux's
comeback than linemate Jaromir Jagr, who had been averaging an
uncharacteristically low 1.03 this season. In the first two games
of Lemieux's return, Jagr had a total of four goals and three
assists. These are the NHL's points-per-game leaders for the last
four-plus seasons.
