This just in: Kyle Okposo is good, and other Islanders views

This Scott Gordon quote about Kyle Okposo -- before last night's game -- made the rounds quickly:

"Well, if anybody was talking about him as if he were a surprise, they weren't watching the second half [last season]. He has established himself as a guy who just does everything right."

But we can forgive outsiders for not watching the Islanders last season. To help them, here's an Okposo offering from last night:


What I particularly appreciate was the game situation: Islanders down 2-0 on a couple of tough luck goals, just minutes left in the 2nd period. Going into the 3rd down by only one goal would really change the outlook, wouldn't it? So Okposo intercepts Matt Moulson's flubbed point shot, spins Volchenkov around, and makes Pascal LeClaire drop to his knees three separate times in preparation for the shot. But it didn't end there. Okposo, just two games since coming back from concussion, continues driving the net to bury it while Jason Spezza watches.
