The Duo Of Anthony Duclair And Max Domi

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

The duo has only sporadically played together so far - mostly on the power play - yet Domi has fed Duclair for three of his team-leading five goals, including a game-tying, feathery soft saucer pass in the third period on Tuesday night against the Devils.

“They have brought exactly what we thought they could. They are quick, they’re strong with the puck and they’re extremely skilled,” Maloney said. “To be honest, I’m not sure where we’d be right now without them.”

Of course, Maloney cautioned that it’s still ridiculously early in the season.

Domi and “The Duke” will no longer be catching teams by surprise, not after Duclair’s hat trick against the Ducks. And Duclair’s staggering five goals on nine shots - a staggering 55.6 shooting percentage - is unsustainable.

“I wish it was,” Maloney said, laughing.

Maloney is most impressed by the fact that two 20-year-olds have not only “built some credibility” with Arizona’s veterans, but that they’ve dragged a few of them along for the ride.

Both are 20 years old.  If they woke up tomorrow in the Wings org, safe to say that they sent packing to GR for a few more years of fermenting.
