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.—David Sabino
