Yep. IIRC, that was the year that the "Pitkanen to Jussi" pass came into existance. Pitkanen would catch Jokinen streaking up the middle of the ice, he'd split the defense, and beat the goaltender 1-on-1.

This is shown even further when you check that his shooting percentage was almost 19% that year, well above his career average and the league average in general.
