Thanks to @BonersJams for suggesting looking into this topic.
Matt Moulson has scored 74 goals as an Islander -- since start of 2009-10, only 11 players have scored more.
His question, how many were assisted by John Tavares?
The (snarky) answer: A lot.
The real answer: 42 -- but it gets better than that.
Tavares assisted on 10 of Moulson's 30 in 2009-10
He assisted on 21 of Moulson's 31 in 2010-11.
This season, Tavares has assisted on 11 of Moulson's 13 goals, meaning of the 44 goals Moulson has scored in the last 14 months, Tavares has assisted on 32 of them (72.7%)
The only two goals Moulson has scored this season without a Tavares assist was on November 7th in Boston, and his final goal on Saturday. Tavares was on ice for both of those goals, but did not get a point.
Tavares recorded 16 assists on Moulson's final 24 goals last season, and was on the ice for every one of them. (This included a streak of 9 straight Moulson goals in which Tavares earned an assist.)
The last time Moulson scored a goal without Tavares on the ice was over a year ago: November 17, 2010 against Tampa. Moulson scored at 17:26 of the second period, just six seconds after he got on the ice ... and before his buddy Tavares could replace Zenon Konopka, the puck was in the net.
So -- for the last 37 goals Moulson has scored, Tavares has assisted on 27 of them, and been on the ice for the other ten.
