Putting this in-game thread up earlier in case anyone's watching other games (Bridgeport, Rangers-Flyers, etc.).
We'll just call this the "Get Moulson to 30 goals" game thread. He needs one more. Getting Kyle Okposo to 20 (he needs two) would be cool, too. Getting John Tavares however many points he likes would be nice as well. When all is said and done, his stats are remarkably similarr to Matt Duchene's, and Duchene is playing on a playoff team.
Welcome back, The Wrecker, called up to take Sean Bergenheim's spot. That means the Islanders have three wingers in the lineup whose biggest strength is dropping the gloves. Holy 1999, Batman.
The Isles don't have the lineup to win, but the Penguins don't have the incentive. So roll the dice and find your lottery ball on the other side.
