The NHL features some good scoring duos at the moment but who are the best 1-2 punches. Well lets take a look at which teams have the best scoring duos in the league right now.
Who is the best 1-2 duo?
Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik - Gaborik and Richards are a dangerous combo. Gaborik is the goal-scorer of the set, racking up seven already this season and finishing 2011-12 with 41. Not surprisingly, Richards ended last season with 41 assists to match Marian's scoring, and he has contributed 11 more in 2013.
Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz - Sid's offensive talent has clearly made Kunitz into the player he is today, as his 22 assists easily cover Kunitz's nine goals, good for a tie for 15th in the league.
Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek - Jakub Voracek has cracked the top 10 in scoring with 24 points this season, getting hot after a slow start for the Orange and Black. Surprisingly, it has been Voracek who had to carry Giroux, though Giroux has since found his scoring touch after a dismal start to the season.
Pavel Satsyuk and Henrik Ztterberg - The duo makes up perhaps hockey's most lethal two-way, two-man threat, as you would be hard-pressed to find a pair of forwards more defensively reliable or offensively consistent than this Swede-Rus combo.
John Tavares and Matt Moulson - Moulson and Tavares are near perfect complements, as neither is the true scorer and neither is the true setup man. Tavares has 13 goals and 12 assists this year, while Moulson is hot on his heels with 10 goals and 13 assists.
Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis - Stamkos leads all scorers with 31 points in only 20 games, making him the most lethal player in the league. St. Louis is not far behind, sitting tied with Henrik Zetterberg for fifth in the league.
Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews - Put together a No. 1 overall pick and a former youngest captain in NHL history and you've got a combination worthy of a record-setting hockey team.
Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry - Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry occasionally make up two-thirds of one of hockey's best lines, also featuring winger Bobby Ryan. While Getzlaf and Perry aren't scoring at a clip equal to some other duos in the league, they remain a top pair in hockey and are presented with a unique situation as the season rolls along.
Evgeni Malkin and James Neal - James Neal has turned out to be a steal for the Pens, who acquired him and Matt Niskanen from Dallas in exchange for Alex Goligoski in 2011. Paired with superstar Evgeni Malkin, Neal has managed to thrive in the Steel City.
Henrik and Daniel Sedin - Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Sweden's most famous twins, are a dynamic duo like no other. Born minutes apart, drafted in succession, signing identical contracts. This is what being a twin is all about.
