Kyle Okposo registered a pair of assists and fired three shots on goal in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Panthers.
The New York Islanders have a 2-1 series lead over the Panthers and Okposo has played a key role, recording a goal and five points thus far. Skating on the top line with John Tavares, the 28-year-old has built off another strong regular season and has come to play in the postseason.
Kyle Okposo found twine, tacking on an assist, two PIM and two hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Panthers in Game 1.
Well-rested after sitting the season finale, Okposo notched his fourth multi-point outing of April to kick off the playoffs. It's safe to say the 27-year-old likes the smell of the postseason, as the winger seems poised to exceed last year's run of three points in seven games. If the top line of the New York Islanders continues to feast, Florida may be sent home early.
Kyle Okposo is among the New York Islanders slated to be rested Sunday against the Flyers.
With the upcoming playoffs in mind, John Tavares, Johnny Boychuk, Frans Nielsen and Casey Cizikas will also sit Sunday, with Okposo's 2015-16 season thus ending with a 22/42/64 stat line through 79 games.
Kyle Okposo (personal) is listed as being in the lineup Saturday night against the Sabres.
Okposo's availability for the last two games of the season has been up in the air since he's soon expected to welcome a baby into the world with his wife. It appears that he's good to go Saturday, but he'll be a risky play since the Isles have already locked up a playoff spot and aren't desperate for his services at the moment.
Okposo could be a healthy scratch for the games Saturday and/or Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports
