New Nickname for Moulson
Matt Moulson was on Hockey This Morning (on SIRIUSXM) and disclosed that his linemates have a new nickname for him.
Tavares and Parenteau have taken to calling him "Tim Tebow", because his play "doesn't look pretty, but it gets the job done."
So well so, that Moulson is now tied-6th in the NHL with 14 goals.
Kessel and Toews each have 17
Stamkos and Michalek each have 16
Giroux has 15
Moulson is one of three players (Neal, Kane) with 14.
Too early to project? 14 goals in 25 games is a 46-goal pace - a mark reached only by five players in Isles history: Bossy, Trottier, Palffy, Turgeon and LaFontaine.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
