Islanders Get Revenge in 3-2 OT Win Against Canes

The Carolina Hurricanes and NY Islanders played the back end of a home-and-home series Tuesday at the PNC Arena after a wild 8-4 Canes win the night before. Jaccob Slavin scored a hat trick with Jeff Skinner and Justin Faulk added two goals each and Joakim Nordstrom adding a solo shot. Tuesday saw the Canes go up by two goals only to squander the lead and eventually lose in overtime.

Leafs Beat Canes 3-2 in OT
