Kyle Okposo - May 5 vs. Pittsburgh With the Islanders on the penalty kill trailing 4-2 in the third period, Frans Nielsen took the puck out of the defensive zone and spun to find Okposo streaking down the middle. Okposo corraled the puck on the breakaway and deked around Marc-Andre Fleury.
Thomas Hickey - Feb. 21 at MontrealAfter coming back from two separate two-goal deficits, the Islanders forced overtime, where John Tavares led a 3-on-2 attack into the Montreal zone. A falling Tavares pushed the puck to Michael Grabner, who found Hickey just outside the crease for his first NHL goal.
