Plays of the Week

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

GOAL OF THE WEEK: JOHNNY BOYCHUK

If there’s one Islander with the inside scoop on how to beat Tuukka Rask, it’s Johnny Boychuk. Coincidentally, he also has an absolute bomb and stepped into a one-timer from Kyle Okposo on Sunday night. As Boychuk moved in off the point on the two-man advantage, all Rask could do was hope the puck hit him, though blocking a Boychuk one-timer hardly seems safe or appealing. Sidenote, who doesn’t love the sound of the puck chipping off the post before the crowd erupts? Great goal by Boychuk. 

Honorable Mention: Kyle Okposo uses defenseman as screen and scores
