Welcome to New York Islanders GIFS of the Week, a weekly post dedicated to highlighting some of the best goals, saves, hits, and celebrations.

This week in GIFs began with an unusual, but welcoming third period on Friday when the Islanders scored seven goals in the third period. Scoring has not been an issue for the Isles as of late and with a depleted squad, winning two of three games in the past week is giving the team and Islanders fans a bright outlook to the seasons ahead with young stars making a huge impact in their short time with the team.

Ryan Strome finishes off some great passing on the power play to continue the Isles massive third period in Vancouver:
