92 - Combined number of points for Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov so far this season, the highest for a one-two center duo in the League. Here's a look at the top-ten tandems:

Center* Duo Team Total Points
Evgeny Kuznetsov / Nicklas Backstrom WSH 92
Jason Spezza / Tyler Seguin DAL 89
Evgeni Malkin / Sidney Crosby PIT 81
Joe Pavelski / Joe Thornton SJS 78
Matt Duchene / Nathan MacKinnon COL 76
Anze Kopitar / Tyler Toffoli LAK 76
David Krejci / Patrice Bergeron BOS 74
Jack Eichel / Ryan O'Reilly BUF 70
Bryan Little / Mathieu Perreault WPG 68
Leon Draisaitl / Ryan Nugent-Hopkins EDM 66
* Players listed as centers on the roster

Guess the Caps are still looking for that #2 center... because right now, they've got two #1 guys.
