Moulson (and Boyes)

Matt Moulson enters tonight with a 6-game assist streak, matching a streak he had last season as well.

The last Islander to have a seven game assist streak is Robert Reichel, who did so in the first seven games of the 1997-98 season (10/3-10/19/97).
 
The club record is 9, last done by Tom Kurvers in 1991-92. 

(Only Sergei Gonchar - who recorded an assist in a 9th straight game last night, has had a longer streak this season.  Moulson and Boyes are two of a handful of players with current six-game POINT streaks; Gonchar (9) is the only player with a longer active point streak.)

 
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
