The Detroit Red Wings are reaping the rewards of Alex DeBrincat's arrival, having acquired the forward from the Ottawa Senators during the summer.

Pairing him with native Michigander Dylan Larkin on the top line was a strategic move that's paying off.

Their collective performance is nothing short of scorching, putting opposing goaltenders on high alert. Larkin and DeBrincat rank second and third in total points with 14 and 13, respectively.

Notably, DeBrincat currently holds the top spot in the NHL for total goals scored, with nine to his name, a two-goal lead over Florida Panthers' Sam Reinhart.

Yet, their accomplishments go beyond individual stats. Larkin and DeBrincat have etched their names in Red Wings history by setting a team record not seen since the end of World War II. Their combined point total of 27 is the highest for a Red Wings duo since the 1944-45 season.
