New York Islanders Top 10 Goal Celebrations of 2016-2017
Number 5: Ho-Sang and Beau
Josh Ho-Sang and Anthony Beauvillier were too young bright spots on this Islanders team. The two rookies worked well together. Ho-Sang was electric in everything he did this year so him jumping up into Beau’s arms for a hug gets you in the feels for number 5.
Number 4: Lee With A Game Winner
This Anders Lee goal was one of many on the season. Although at the time Lee was struggling so not only was this a huge Islanders moment, getting the lead with under 30 seconds remaining, it was also a big moment for Lee. It’s a simple celebration just throwing his hands up in the air and waving his fingers but it was one of the more iconic cele’s of the season.
Number 3: Ho-Sang in Buffalo
Everything Josh Ho-Sang does he does with a swagger. This is no different, he scores a beautiful goal and then that stick twirl. It’s simple but effective, I’m a big fan it. Ho-Sang is going to dominate this list if we do it again next year.
Number 2: Ho-Sang’s First Career Goal
We talked about it with Beau. Your first goal is going to memorable you have to have a memorable celebration with it! Ho-Sang didn’t disappoint with the modified Thomas Hickey celebration. It was only a sign of things to come for the youngster.
Number 1: Tavares Tries To Be Human
John Tavares trying to compute human emotions and actions is always funny. This one was no different. After scoring a game winner against the Carolina Hurricanes he just punched Jason Chimera right in the face. Laugh out loud funny stuff from our captain.
