Pro Update: When Will Okposo Run Out of Ways to Score?

| No TrackBacks
Yesterday, we brought you's feature on former Gopher Kyle Okposo and the St. Paul native's stellar play over the last month. 

Okposo continued to produce for the New York Islanders with a goal (his third goal and fourth point in four playoff games) in last night's 6-4 win over Paul Martin and the Pittsburgh Penguins that tied the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series at 2-2. 

But it's not just that Okposo is scoring's how he's scoring them. 

Last night, Okposo evened the game at 3-3 in the second period (New York would go on to outscore the Penguins 3-1 in the third) when he threw a backhanded attempt from behind the net off Marc-Andre Fleury into the net. 

In game three's 5-4 overtime loss, Okposo tipped a no-look pass to himself to setup this shorthanded goal that started a two-goal rally to force overtime. 

And then there was the game two winner from Okposo when the forward blindly threw a shot towards the net that bounced off the wall, off Fleury and in to give the Islanders a 4-3 win. 

But our favorite's still probably this beauty from college...
