from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Giroux entered Sunday tied for second in the NHL with 15 points (seven goals, eight assists). Jagr has five goals - all in the last four games.
Oh, and Hartnell, who had been mired in a slump, has regained his scoring touch since he replaced van Riemsdyk on the “Little Mario” line.
In the five games since they have been together, the unit has combined for 11 goals and 12 assists and a plus-8 rating. In the last four games, they have combined for 23 points and a plus-13 rating.
“They seem to have some chemistry out there,” coach Peter Laviolette said.
The much-maligned Hartnell has led the way in the last four games with nine points (four goals, five assists), while Giroux (two goals, five assists) and Jagr (five goals, two assists) each have seven points in that span.
“You need the three guys to mix together,” Jagr said, “and everybody brings something special.”
