This season, Simmonds has five multi-goal games. Nobody has more.

In the Philadelphia Flyers' 6-3 win over the Nashville Predators, Wayne Simmonds scored two goals.

It's the fifth time this season Simmonds has scored two goals in one game. The other four are:

So whenever Simmonds has two goals in one game, chances look pretty good for the Flyers to win!

Here's the fun part, though: nobody else has more multi-goal games this season than Simmonds. Just five other players have five multi-goal games this year:

  • Jamie Benn
  • Johnny Gaudreau
  • Mike Hoffman
  • Tyler Seguin
  • Steven Stamkos

That doesn't mean they're all two-goal games - there's a hat trick or three sprinkled in there - but when it comes to scoring more than one goal in a game, Simmonds is in pretty good company. It's certainly no surprise he leads the Flyers in goals.
