Chemistry or not, it's hard to imagine this experiment will go much further if Boychuk can't get on the score sheet. At some point you have to produce.
Well, to be fair to Boychuk, those 7 points for Malkin and 4 points for Neal aren't many at even strength. Malkin has had 4 PPP over the last four games, along with one on the Sutter goal that came when Crosby came out of the penalty box as Malkin and Sutter concluded the PK. All of Neal's four points have been on the PP.

So basically, there's a possibility of two goal that Malkin factored in on that might have been when Boychuk was on the ice, and even Neal didn't factor in on those two.
