Best part about this:
When he returned, he was 12 points behind Buffalo's Pat LaFontaine in the scoring race. On March 10th, he was 18 points behind Lafontaine. By March 26th it was a 5 point lead, with 10 games left each.
Lemieux won his second straight and fourth overall scoring title, finishing with 160 points (69 goals, 91 assists) in 60 games, beating out LaFontaine by 12 points, despite Lafontaine playing 24 more games than him.
