New York Islanders: Kyle Okposo’s Best Moments
#1: Captain America strikes down the Blackhawks
The story behind this goal couldn’t have been scripted any better.
Just one day after being snubbed from the 2014 United States Olympic Team, Kyle Okposo played with the most heart we ever saw him play with.
He rallied his New York Islanders team to a third-period comeback against the Chicago Blackhawks, sending the game into overtime and never looking back from there.
Kyle wanted this win more than anyone else on the ice, and he got what he wished for as he sniped it top shelf on Corey Crawford to win the game for the New York Islanders.
The reaction from the fans was the most memorable part of this goal.
The fans knew Kyle deserved to be on that roster. The fans wanted him on that roster. And they let Kyle know it, chanting: “USA! USA! USA! USA!”, as he came out of the locker room to salute the crowd after being named the first star of the game.

There are many more memories of Kyle Okposo that New York Islanders fans hold dearly in their hearts, but no matter what your favorite memory is, we all truly miss Kyle Okposo.
So when Kyle skates out onto the Barclays Center ice on Friday for his first time in a Buffalo Sabres uniform, give him one last memory, a standing ovation, and one last salute to the place he used to call home.
