He was No. 3 behind Jagr and Lindros. What a season.

It was a 7 - 7 tie in LA.
The 5th goal was a breakaway "Lemieux" deke (although Zhamnov was always more impressive. Mario did it with reach and skill... Alexei did it with just skill).
He was tied for 1st in scoring late in the season. Jagr and Lindros outscored him in the last 2 days of the season.
Still highest finish for any Jet ever.
And he did that with Selanne on the shelf.

If a Jet scored 5 goals in a game now my head would explode!!!

Below is a link to an example of the deke... different game but same magic!!
