Parenteau 5th in Assists

Standard Spin: Albeit with but one assist, PA Parenteau's fantastic season continued Friday as he collected his 36th helper of the year.  Parenteau has been a machine in the assist department this year; he is ranked 5th in the league, and he is doing it without playing full time on the Tavares line.  The Islanders may appear weak, but they have so much talent that they could easily turn it around in 2012-13.  Tavares looks like he is going to lead the league in scoring at some point, while Moulson keeps proving everyone wrong.

Game Note: Zack Smith is quietly amassing his best career year.  With a goal against the Islanders, he now has 13 on the year to go along with 23 points, 2 SHG, 3 GWG, 93 shots and 57 PIMs. Not too shabby for a "nobody." (2/4/12)
