Canes rally in third, down Islanders 6-4

Posted February 11, 2013

FINAL: Hurricanes 6, NY Islanders 4

Jiri Tlusty had two goals and two assists in the third period Monday as the Carolina Hurricanes stormed back to beat the New York Islanders, 6-4, and improve to 3-1-1 on their six-game road trip.

Eric Staal has a goal and an assist and extended his consecutive-game points streak to nine. Jeff Skinner scored a goal and Jordan Staal had an assist and each have five-game point streaks.

Cam Ward finished the night with 28 saves.

The Canes are 6-2-1 in their last nine contests and close out their season-long road stretch Tuesday in New Jersey.

The Islanders took advantage of two more Canes penalties in the second period and are 3-for-3 on the power play as they lead Carolina 3-2 after two periods.

The second New York goal was tallied by Jonathan Tavares. The 22-year-old now has 10 goals and 16 points against Carolina in 13 career games.

Jeff Skinner tied the game at two on his seventh goal of the season just 30 seconds later.

New York regained the lead on a Matt Moulson goal a few minutes later.

Cam Ward has faced 24 shots while the Canes have taken just 20.

End of 1: Canes 1, NY Islanders 1

Frans Nielsen got the Islanders on the board with a power play goal early in the game but the Canes responded with a goal from the fourth line as Tim Wallace lit the lamp assisted by Jamie McBain.

Cam Ward made 11 saves in the opening period while Carolina only put six on net offensively. 

The Hurricanes also took care of the puck with zero giveaways.

A couple lineup changes are in order for Carolina as they play game No. 5 of 6 on thier season-long road trip. Jamie McBain will get the start on defense for Bobby Sanguinetti and Kevin Westgarth will be a healthy scratch replaced by Andreas Nodl.

In net, Cam Ward will make his fourth consecutive start.

Pregame

The Carolina Hurricanes are 5-2-1 since starting the year 0-2 and look to stay hot Monday as they play a New York Islanders team that has lost four in a row. 

The Isles turned a few heads with a solid 4-2-1 start to the season, but the club has fallen off considerably with four straight regulation losses to begin February.

The Isles won all four meetings against the Hurricanes last season and scored 15 times during the series. All told, the clubs have split the past 12 tilts in this matchup and Carolina has seven wins in its last 10 trips to Long Island. Carolina Hurricanes Logo Carolina Hurricanes schedule

The Hurricanes had a two-game win streak snapped Saturday in Philadelphia, but managed to get a point thanks to a third-period goal from Joe Corvo.

Carolina trailed 3-2 heading into the final 20 minutes before Corvo tied it with 12:02 left in the third period. The score remained that way until Philadelphia's Danny Briere scored at the 1:47 mark of overtime to give the Flyers the 4-3 win.

"I think we did a good job battling back there in the third," said Carolina forward Jeff Skinner. "It was a big goal by [Joe Corvo]. We carried the momentum into the overtime, I think. But in overtime anything can happen. So, I think it was a good job battling back."

Corvo also posted an assist in the loss and Jiri Tlusty and Jeff Skinner each lit the lamp for the Hurricanes. Cam Ward posted 28 saves. Canes Tracker tn Meet the Carolina Hurricanes

The Islanders played Saturday against visiting Buffalo and were dealt a 3-2 setback. The score was tied at 2-2 heading into the third period, but Alexander Sulzer scored the go-ahead goal with 12:25 remaining.

Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller frustrated New York all game, stopping 41-of-43 shots to anchor Buffalo's victory and he notched a game-saving stop of John Tavares on a penalty shot with 3:53 left to play.

New York lost despite outshooting the Sabres by a wide 43-15 margin.

Tavares did register a goal in the first period, but Evgeni Nabokov managed just 12 saves. Colin McDonald netted New York's other goal, with Brian Strait notching two assists in the setback. Carolina Hurricanes Logo More Hurricanes Stories

"We came close and we had a bunch of opportunities," said Tavares. "Sometimes it's bad luck, but I think as many opportunities as we had, we've got to put them in when we can."

The setback dropped the Islanders to 1-4-0 as the host this season. New York has lost three straight on home ice since posting its last win at the Coliseum on Jan. 21 against Tampa Bay.

Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky and forward Josh Bailey both made their season debuts for the Islanders on Saturday. Visnovsky finally reported to the team earlier in the week after attempting to remain in the Russian Kontinental Hockey League following the resolution of the lockout, while Bailey had been sidelined with a knee injury sustained while playing in Germany during the work stoppage .

Visnovsky finished the game with a plus-2 rating, making him the Islanders' only plus player on the season.

Carolina is 2-1-1 on its current six-game road trip and both of the losses on the swing were against the Flyers. The 'Canes are scheduled to complete the trek Tuesday evening at New Jersey.

    ...Let it go you whiner, this is really getting boring on your part. Find another sport and shut up.

    I WAS as STH for the Canes. The strike put a sour taste in my mouth that won't be easily washed away. It hacks me off that the icebrains (players) cry poor when they are making $ millions to play a sport.

    Hey kids, want to see a hero? Check out the US soldier that won the Medal of Honor today. You surely won't find a hero among the icebrains.
