Martin Erat - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

90-48-20_medium
Marcus Johansson - Casey Wellman - Troy Brouwer

25-16-42_medium

Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward

21-83-43_medium

Brooks Laich - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson

27-74

Karl Alzner - John Carlson

81-58_medium
Dmitry Orlov - Connor Carrick

59-56_medium
