He had two assists. I remember the phantom assist quite clearly. He did too touch the puck, a Florida(?) player touched it afterwards, which could have negated the assist, but didn't, because the player in question didn't have enough control over the puck to justify a whistle if his team had a delayed penalty, for example; he barely touched it along the boards and it went straight to Jagr, I think. Also, Söderberg provided the screen on that goal, so I think it was a more well-earned assist than most secondary assists in the league.
