Okposo scored four goals, including his first career NHl hat trick, and recorded six shots on goal in Friday's win over Pittsburgh.

What time is it? It's five past Fleury. Thanks to Okposo's dominant outing, the Islanders are now the first team to 30 wins this season.

Okposo set up both of John Tavares' goals in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flames.

Okposo's two helpers helped him stay even with Tavares for the team scoring lead, as both top-line forwards have notched 34 points in 38 games. Increased proficiency as an assist man have helped Okposo compensate for his dramatic dip in goal scoring this season. He's found the net just three times in his last 26 games and is shooting just 6.5 percent this season, a significant drop from the 13.8 mark he posted during the 2013-14 campaign.
