Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby are first and third in NHL scoring right now.
What else do you really need to know?
This Penguin pairing has been making opposing coaches sweat on a nightly basis for a few years now, and they're not even in their prime yet.
With 94 points in 67 games, Malkin is the definition of consistent. He shows up and puts up, points that is, and he does it every game. With a laser shot and the ability to find the open man, he simply cannot be contained by just one player alone, sometimes one team alone!
Crosby, on the other hand, has the particularly difficult job of being the face of the entire NHL, and he's rather good at it. While dealing with a few different injuries this season he has still managed to put up 82 points through 62 games, average numbers for him.
Mind-boggling for the rest of us.
Like the commercial says; "Crosby doesn't quit." He is the best in the league at splitting the defense, and you could say one of his favourite hobbies is leaving goalies' jock straps somewhere in row 118. You could even make the argument that he is the best passer in the NHL.
After their shot at the cup last year came just short, you know these two have tasted what it feels like to be there, but now they want it even more. Something that the league will witness when the playoffs role around and Sid and 'Gino' are once again at the top of the scoring race in the playoffs.
Put these two together and you have a dream scenario of every single GM; two players on the same line that other teams know they cannot stop.
