The Best Scoring Duo In The NHL

from Dave Hodge of TSN,

My thumb is up to the best one-two scoring punch in the NHL, those two dazzling forwards who play on a certain team in the state of Pennsylvania.

In the past, and maybe again in the future, I would be talking about Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins. But, of course, you know that I am referring to the NHL’s leading scorer, Jakub Voracek and his Philadelphia Flyers teammate Claude Giroux. Watching them have their way against the Toronto Maple Leafs last night made you wonder why the Flyers aren’t higher in the standings.

Unless there’s a big turnaround coming that began in Toronto, the Flyers have to be described as a team with a bunch of holes and two of the league’s best players, either of whom could win the Hart Trophy if Philly could only find a way to fill the holes.

As you watched the Flyers and Leafs score six times in the game’s first 12 minutes, you probably thought this was the NHL’s version of Halley’s Comet. You just never see a scoring spree like that anymore, and so….my thumb is down to a lack of scoring in the NHL.
