Jovo could do this, and did do this on a consistent basis over his career with the Canucks. That is why I rank Jovo higher, but just slightly.
Ohlund increased his point totals by quite a bit in the playoffs and is fourth all time on the Canucks in overtime goals. He absolutely carried the team on his shoulders. Jovo had great offensive talent but was good for one major gaffe per game and was sitting in the penalty box in OT when we lost to Calgary the last time we met in the playoffs.
