When they reached the milestone, the all-time greats became just the fourth pair of linemates -- and the only pair of linemates that didn't include a guy named Wayne Gretzky -- to score 130 points or more in the same season in NHL history. Gretzky and Jari Kurri were the first pair to do it in 1984-85, when they scored 208 and 135 points, respectively, for the Edmonton Oilers; Gretzky and Kurri were arguably better the following season, when they scored 215 and 131 points, again for the Oilers. And in his first season after being traded away from the Oilers, Gretzky and Los Angeles Kings linemate Bernie Nicholls scored 168 and 150 points, respectively.
