More on the streaking Okposo

Elias had a good note on Okposo today -- for the 4th time this season he has recorded multiple points in at least three straight games.Not only is Kyle the ONLY player in the NHL to do that this season, only two other players in the entire league have had more than one streak of three multi-point games this season-- Phil Kessel has done that three times while Sidney Crosby has done it twice.

Some other Okposo notes:

Most multi-point games this season
1 Crosby 26
2. Kessel 23
3. Okposo 21

Most multi-point games by an Isles (last 20 years)

1. Ziggy Palffy 25 (1996-97)
2. John Tavares 22 (2011-12)
    Ziggy Palffy 22 (1997-98)
4. Kyle Okposo 21 (2013-14)
    PA Parenteau 21 (2011-12)

(before Palffy, you have to go back to Turgeon, who had 30 multi-point games in 1993-94.)

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
