Come back daily beginning August 12 to select each day's winner, and on August 22, we'll unveil which goal you've selected as the best of 2013. Voting runs from 3:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. each day.

Today, the voting is between three John Tavares goals, and only one will advance to the semi-finals. The candidates are:

Feb. 23 at Buffalo

Tavares battles behind the goal, and outworks the Sabres defense before beating goaltender Ryan Miller to put the Islanders ahead 3-0 early in the third period.

May 7 vs. Pittsburgh

After overcoming two deficits in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Penguins, Tavares weaves through the Pittsburgh zone to put the Islanders ahead 5-4 midway through the third period.


March 14 at Tampa Bay

Midway through a scoreless game, the Islanders power play converted its only opportunity of the night. Mark Streit's point shot changed directions twice before finding its way to Tavares' stick for a tap-in goal.
