Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are the top one-two punch in the NHL.

The one-two punch may be most associated with boxing, but a dominant one-two punch in hockey is often the stuff legends are made of.

The Chicago Blackhawks once had the hold-your-breath duo of Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita.

The Boston Bruins turned things around when Bobby Orr teamed up with Phil Esposito.

The Edmonton Oilers put together one of the greatest teams of all time with the one-two punch of Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier.

The Pittsburgh Penguins won a pair of championships thanks in large part to the combination of Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr.

A generation later, the Penguins once again have the best one-two punch in the game in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and they're bound to take over the NHL in 2013.
