For all that I'm sure Evgeni Malkin will score and this fantastic points list will look very different few more games into the season, the current league-wide points leaders are:
1. Alexander Ovechkin (6)
2. Brooks Laich (5)
3. Alexander Semin (5)
4. Nicklas Backstrom (5)
5. Wojtek Wolski (4)
It has to warm the heart of any cas fan to see that. By the way you can see it straight from the NHL here:
Ovie also leads the league in plus/minus and goals while Backstrom leads in assists. Another interesting point is that Alex Semin has been credited with winning 100% of his face-offs. While he may be competing in fewer face-offs than say Steckel or Gordon, this is still impressive. Hopefully all of these stand after the game against Philly.
