Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo would much rather be playing into June than checking out the Final to watch their closest friends play. But for the two Islanders forwards, there's worse things than seeing someone you've known for years get this close to a Stanley Cup.
Moulson made the trip out to the Prudential Center Wednesday night to watch his brother-in-law and longtime friend, Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, make his Final debut. Okposo was going to watch from home in Minnesota to see his high-school pal, Devils captain Zach Parise, make his first appearance in a Final.
"It's been great to see Quickie become the cornerstone of that team," Moulson said Wednesday, before he headed out here with some family to watch Quick play. Moulson and Quick married sisters; Moulson's wife, Alicia, is seven months pregnant and stayed home, but Quick's wife, Jaclyn, and her brother, Sound Tigers forward Sean Backman, joined Moulson for the game.
