from Davis Harper of NHL.com, 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.

At this point in the season, it is not a good sign when your team still has fewer than 10 wins. It means you are going to be in the running in June for a great draft pick position. With a 4-1 loss to Chicago added to the growing list, the Ducks still can't reach double digits in the win column.Only three teams are in the battle for last place in the NHL and all of them...
