5 with at least 13

I've been noting in The Skinny for the last several games how a quintet of
Islanders have combined for over 60% of the team's goals:

<<Top 5
The Isles have five players with at least 13 goals (Tavares-18, Moulson-17,
Grabner-15, Comeau-13 and Parenteau-13); the quintet has combined for 76 of the

Isles' 123 goals (62%) this season. >>

While several other teams also have five players with at least 13 goals, only
one team has six players with 13 goals: Philadelphia ( Danny Briere-26, Jeff
Carter-23, Claude Giroux -19, Scott Hartnell - 17, Mike Richards -17, Nikolai
Zherdev - 15 )

After having only four players score at least 20 goals over the past three
seasons (combined), the Isles could have as many as five 20-goal scorers this
season.
