Okposo notched a goal and an assist Tuesday against the Rangers, pushing his season-opening scoring streak to three games and five points.

Okposo assisted on two Islanders goals in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Hurricanes.

It hasn't taken long for Okposo to reestablish rapport with John Tavares on the top line, as the winger now has three points through the team's two games. He's still on the lookout for his first goal of the season, but that should come quickly, especially as the second line -- centered by the red-hot Brock Nelson -- starts to attract more attention from opponents.

Kyle Okposo (lower body) isn't expected to return for New York's last three games of the season.

Coach Jack Capuano doesn't expect any of the team's injured players to return before the end of the year. "No need to rush anyone back," he said. "The standings won't change." That could include Cal Clutterbuck and Calvin De Haan, who were hurt recently. Okposo hasn't played since Mar. 25 because of a lower-body injury.

Kyle Okposo couldn't complete Friday's practice due to a lower-body injury.

Okposo is day-to-day as a result. With him sidelined, that means the Islanders have lost their entire top line, including John Tavares (knee) and Thomas Vanek (traded). For Okposo, this is an unfortunate setback in what has been a great season. He's broken out with 27 goals and 69 points in 69 games this season.

Kyle Okposo has three goals and 10 points in 10 games since the Olympic break.

Okposo has been great all year, but those numbers are particularly noteworthy because he's put them up without the benefit of playing alongside John Tavares and, for the most part, Thomas Vanek. This has been a breakout campaign for Okposo and we don't expect him to regress significantly in 2014-15.
