He's always been a streaky player. He's certainly been on one of those hot streak since being acquired. I doubt it lasts but it really doesn't have to since he's just a stopgap until Sid can get healthy. Once Sid returns Jussi can fallback into a depth role where he'll only be expected to win draws and provide sporadic offense. It's great that he's providing steady offense with Sid out though. The timing of this hot streak is perfect for the Pens.
