  • Dominic Moore recorded two assists and posted a plus-two rating in 16:36 of ice time.
  • Moore tied single-game playoff career-highs in assists (two) and points (two) in the contest.
  • The Rangers forward has now tallied two assists in a playoff game twice in his career (May 4, 2011 vs. Washington as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning) and two points in a playoff game on five occasions, including twice in this year’s playoffs (Game 5 vs. Philadelphia on Apr. 27). Moore has recorded three points (three assists) in his last two games.

Brian Boyle told John Giannone that Moore was able to produce because he got to play with actual linemates. Moore, in response to that, said on MSG that one of his strengths is that he can be a versatile player and do what the coaches ask of him.

On how Moore performed, Alain Vigneault said “he did an unreal job…he stepped in and we all know his story. He has handled his personal and professional situation in a great way.”
