Last night, John Tavares seemed to have a little extra in him as he was mixing it up physically a little more then he usually does. This was most noticeable in the third period when noted league pest Steve Ott mugged the Islanders captain which had no response at first. However, after Ott went back for seconds, Tavares line-mates Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo were quick to respond and Okposo got a minor penalty on the play while Ott got a double minor. The ensuing powerplay led to an Islanders goal.
After the game Okposo told the New York Post, "He's just running around, and you can't go after 91. Just can't do that. I jumped in there, and that will happen all season."
As much as Okposo struggles, seeing stuff like this very good and evidence as to why he wears an A on this team.
