Cup Finals Scoring Leaders

Below are the point leaders for the Cup finals, somewhat surprisingly led by the Flyers trio of Briere, Leino and Hartnell. These are the only three Flyers scoring at least a point per game, while Chicago has seven players with 5 or 6 points.
The most surprising thing may be the fact that Toews, Gagne, Carter and Richards each have only two points over the five games.
The all-time record for points in a Cup final is Wayne Gretzky with 13 in 1988 against Boston. He scored 11 points in the four game sweep, as well as two in the game suspended due to power outage at the Garden. Gretz's 10 assists are also tops. Mario Lemieux tallied 12 points in five games against Minnesota in the '91 finals. With 9 points and 7 helpers, Danny Briere is definitely within striking distance of the all-time records.
