Jussi Jokinen's productive postseason continued last night as he scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the third period of a 4-2 road win against the Rangers in Game 4.

It was Jokinen's third game-winning goal of the postseason. Jokinen is now one of just eight players who have scored three or more game-winning goals in a single postseason for the Penguins:

Player, position Year Game-Winning
Mario Lemieux, C 1992 5
Kevin Stevens, LW 1991 4
Jaromir Jagr, RW 1992 4
Ron Francis, C 1991 4
Jaromir Jagr, RW 2000 4
Evgeni Malkin, C 2009 3
Kevin Stevens, LW 1992 3
Evgeni Malkin, C 2008 3
Jussi Jokinen, LW 2014 3
Rob Brown, RW 1989 3
