NHL: Okposo Goes Off for Three Points

| No TrackBacks
Former Gopher Kyle Okposo ended the month of February with a bang on Thursday night, tallying a goal and two assists in the New York Islanders' 5-4 loss to Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

The forward's second goal of the year erased a 4-3 deficit for New York and forced overtime although the Maple Leafs went on to pick up the win. For the season, Okposo has eight points (two goals, six assists). 

Check out all three of Okposo's sweet points from last night, starting with his goal: 


Okposo's first assist of the night was equally impressive on Thursday: 


His second helper of the night wasn't bad either: 



Noteworthy: 

*Jim O'Brien suffered a similar fate to Okposo on Thursday, scoring to force overtime only for the Ottawa Senators to lose 2-1 in overtime to Boston. The former Gopher has a career-best five goals this season and needs just one point to match a career-high. Here's his goal from last night: 



*Nick Leddy picked up an assist in Chicago's 3-0 win at St. Louis on Thursday. 

*Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal in Winnipeg's 3-1 win over New Jersey. The former Gopher now has 17 points this season.
