Jussi Jokinen notched a power-play tally, two assists, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders in Game 1.
Jokinen filled the scoresheet in this one, but unfortunately it wasn't enough as the Islanders stole home ice. The veteran's last postseason appearance was with Pittsburgh in 2013-14 in which he went on a tear of 10 points in 13 games. The 33-year-old is clearly excited to be back in the playoffs, and the winger is carrying over his 60-point season nicely to start off the series despite the disappointing loss.
Jussi Jokinen put home a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.
After picking up points in five straight games, Jokinen had gone dry in six games. The points come at a great time, as the Florida Panthers hope Jokinen can get hot again going into the playoffs. Jokinen finishes the season with 18 goals and the highest assist total of his career (42).
Jussi Jokinen scored a shorthanded goal, adding an assist and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.
It was Jokinen's first shorthanded goal of the season, but more importantly, the winger has reached the scoresheet in five straight. Even more impressive, the 32-year-old has notched points in 15 of the last 16, amassing 20 in that span. This guy's on fire -- start and enjoy.
Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and notched an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Bruins.
Jokinen now has points in every game in the month of March but one. He has managed 13 points in 11 games in that span. The 32-year-old is having his best year statistically since his rookie season where he put up 65 points. It will be a challenge for him to surpass that mark this season, but with the Florida Panthers having eight games left, it is not out of the question.
Jussi Jokinen opened the scoring on a power play 24 seconds into the second period Thursday, then added a second goal just under nine minutes later in a 4-1 win over Toronto.
Jokinen got the Florida Panthers ' offense started and in fact ended up being the only one to beat Toronto's Jonathan Bernier, and yet it all happened rather by accident. Both goals were unassisted, and both came on pass attempts that deflected off Toronto sticks and past the goal line. Well, he'll take the points however they come, and they've been coming in spades for Jokinen lately -- he's racked up 14 points while going plus-8 over his last 12 games. The lower-body injury that kept him out Tuesday doesn't seem to be an issue.
