This is the first time all season two Flyers have scored three points each in the same game.

The Philadelphia Flyers' win over the Boston Bruins' saw two particularly impressive performances courtesy of Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, and their three-point games.

It's not the first time Giroux and Voracek have scored that much in a single game this season. The 3-2 win was Giroux's third three-point game of the season, and Voracek's second. They were involved in every Flyers goal, with Voracek scoring a goal and two assists, and Giroux registering three assists himself.

However, it was the first time they both had three points in the same game - the first time any two Flyers have had three-point games in the same game this season.

While it took the Flyers half this season to have two three-point players in a single game, they actually had three instances of it in 2014-15. Giroux and Voracek were responsible for two of them - because they're extremely good players, and some of the absolute best the Flyers have to offer - but the third actually came from Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds when Schenn had two goals and an assist, and Simmonds, a goal and two assists.

Still, if there's any game you can point to to highlight just how important Giroux and Voracek are - well, this one has to be up there.
