The most memorable moments and the best plays in hockey history live on in our memories—and videotape—and they remain cemented there forever.

In most cases, the greatest memories are offensive plays. The superb pass leads to a perfect shot and the back of the net bulges.

In this piece we look at the greatest scoring duo in each team's history. If a team like the Colorado Avalanche started off in Quebec City, we include the exploits of Nordiques players. The accomplishments of the Minnesota North Stars are included on the Dallas Stars. The Phoenix Coyotes include the "old" Winnipeg Jets, while the new Winnipeg Jets include the old Atlanta Thrashers.
