When you're playing with [Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau] they've got phenomenal chemistry and I think Jagr ... is probably pretty excited about the lineup that we have and we've got defensemen that can get the puck up to him pretty quick on a regular basis." Jagr appears to be trimmer in his attempt to adapt to the NHL's shift to a speedier game.

Everything is a lot tighter, so to score goals it's a little bit tougher. They're playing good defense, so we should score on power plays, and we didn't do that. ... It's wait and see." Jagr will look to snap his 34-game postseason goal drought in Game 4 on Wednesday night.

The Florida Panthers' top line of Jaromir Jagr, Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau have yet to find the back of the net in the playoffs.

Luckily for Florida, their second line of Jussi Jokinen, Reilly Smith and Nick Bjugstad have led the way for them. "They're playing real well and are creating a lot of opportunities," Gallant said of the Barkov line. "They've been snake-bit a little bit putting pucks in the net. Their goals will come, just keep working hard and playing the game the right way."
