Islanders slow start continues with loss to Hurricanes

Islanders

The Canes and Islanders last faced each other in the second round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs.

"Much better than the other game, no question", Trotz said.

Carolina Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin (74) battles between New York Islanders' Devon Toews (25), Brock Nelson (29) and goaltender Thomas Greiss (1), of Germany, during the second period of an NHL hockey game, in Raleigh, N.C., Friday, Oct. 11, 2019.

The Hurricanes were so effective that Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour said he couldn't find anything to complain about. "It's good stuff. We have a good team and we're hard to play against".

With the game tied in the second thanks to two Islanders power play goals, Carolina grabbed the lead and never looked back.

Carolina Hurricanes left wing Erik Haula (56) is congratulated after his second period goal against the New York Islanders at PNC Arena. We're likely to see at least a bit of a drop-off in production from Svechnikov and some of the supporting cast like Haula, Dzingel and Jordan Staal.

Erik Haula worked the puck out of the right corner and scored on his own rebound to give Carolina a 3-2 lead at 15:09. So it was good.

"It's nice to play with the lead going into the third, so it was good", Haula said. Starting goaltender Petr Mrazek recorded his third win of the season and now sits with 2.57 goals against average to go with an.822 save percentage...

Maybe I shouldn't even say surprise because many like myself guessed that he would have a bigger impact with an increased role this year. The Islanders have really not been able to play that great offensively this year and while the Hurricanes defense is not the best, they are able to bring home a win in the game as their offense control the game. "The 5-0 is kind of irrelevant". It's trying to win the day, and that's the mentality these guys have had and have to continue. "That's what we're trying to sell here, and so far they're buying into it".

The Hurricanes: Plays its second home game in as many nights, hosting Columbus on Saturday. The Islanders are a +148 underdog, while the total is set at 6 goals.

Teravainen's goal, his second in as many games, was a simple tap-in made possible by the scintillating pass from Hamilton. The Islanders' first power play lasted eight seconds before Nelson scored. Peter Mrazek stopped 17 of 19 shots in goal. Hamilton's seven points (three goals, four assists) are tied for the most in franchise history through the first five games in a season (Mark Howe, 1980-81; Risto Siltanen, 1982-83 and 1984-85).

The Isles tied the game early in the second, again converting on the power play.

With Svechnikov serving a bench minor of a weird delay of game call late in the first, NY defenseman Johnny Boychuk found himself alone on the right side of the ice and ripped a slap shot past Petr Mrazek (17 saves) to tie the game at 2-all. Svechnikov added an empty-netter in the final minute of the third period, his first goal of the season. He tried to get an explanation, but then was told just to get the same players on the ice due to an icing call.

"I was shooting the whole way, but then you've got to pass when it's that easy", Hamilton said. So at least I would have liked to talk it out. "We're going out there every night and throwing what we've got at the other team, and that's good. We just have to keep focusing on day by day".

Notes: Pesce had a career-high six shots on goal. He took a high-sticking penalty in the third period.
