After a brilliant four-goal effort in the Islanders' 5-4 win over Dallas Saturday, Matt Moulson was named the NHL's first star of the week.

The 28-year-old left wing's standout performance this weekend capped a week in which he finished with six goals and one assist in five games, helping his struggling Islanders club to a 3-0-1 finish on their four-game road trip.

The two-time 30-goal scorer has 13 goals and 6 assists in 24 games for the Islanders this season. He is is joined by brother-in-law, Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, on the league's list of best performers for the week.

Quick recorded two wins last week, including one shutout, to post a 0.50 goals against average and .987 save percentage.
