Who are the 2022 NHL playoffs points leaders? 

A number of players showed out in the first two rounds. 

Leading away is the dynamic Edmonton duo of McDavid and Draisaitl. McDavid has 29 points in 13 games while Draisaitl has 28. Their points-per-game rates sit in the top 10 all time in NHL history. 

Mika Zibanejad and Adam Fox have been crucial for the Rangers in their series comebacks against the Penguins and Hurricanes. Zibanejad is coming off a two-point performance in Game 1 against Tampa Bay while Fox had two points as well in New York's win. 

Nikita Kucherov is back at it with 15 points as he and the defending champion Lightning eye a three-peat. Evander Kane's 13 goals lead all skaters this postseason.
