NewYorkIslanders.com has selected the nine goals from the Islanders 2013 season, and it's up to you, the fans, to decide which will move on in our tournament bracket. 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 12:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. each day.

Today, the voting is between Kyle Okposo's short-handed goal during Game 3 of the Conference Quarterfinals against Pittsburgh, and Thomas Hickey's overtime game-winner from Feb. 21 at Montreal. Only one will advance to the semi-finals.

Kyle Okposo - May 5 vs. Pittsburgh

With the Islanders on the penalty kill trailing 4-2 in the third period, Frans Nielsen took the puck out of the defensive zone and spun to find Okposo streaking down the middle. Okposo corraled the puck on the breakaway and deked around Marc-Andre Fleury.

Thomas Hickey - Feb. 21 at Montreal

After coming back from two separate two-goal deficits, the Islanders forced overtime, where John Tavares led a 3-on-2 attack into the Montreal zone. A falling Tavares pushed the puck to Michael Grabner, who found Hickey just outside the crease for his first NHL goal.
