Kukla's Korner Hockey

Picture the following scenario: A forward gets on a hot streak, and the rest of his line – and maybe even a defenseman or two – warm themselves around his fire. Happens every season, right?
So far this season, six teams are adding a slight wrinkle to that narrative: two guys on a torrid pace – feeding off one another’s soaring confidence – are setting the goal-scoring pace for the entire League.
The duos, in order of production: Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp, Chicago, 35 goals; Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul, Toronto, 34 goals; Evgeni Malkin and James Neal, Pittsburgh, 33 goals; Steven Stamkos and Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay, 31 goals; Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell, Philadelphia, 31 goals; Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza, Ottawa, 31 goals.
