Elias on the Isles' December
from the Elias geniuses:
From Elias: Matt Moulson recorded one goal and two assists in the Islanders' 4-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday afternoon. Moulson led the Islanders with 18 points in December (9 goals, 9 assists), just ahead of P.A. Parenteau (16) and John Tavares (15), who each contributed a goal and an assist to the Isles' victory against Edmonton. Moulson's 18 points were the most in one calendar month by an Islanders player since March 1998, when Zigmund Palffy scored 18 points. December 2011 was also the first month in which three different Islanders each scored at least 15 points since March 1994, when Pierre Turgeon (23), Steve Thomas (18) and Derek King (17) all did so.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit
