UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- This one had the look of another frustrating Carolina Hurricanes loss to the New York Islanders.
Then the third period came, and everything changed.
Alexander Semin netted his 200th NHL goal, and Jiri Tlusty scored twice and had two assists in the decisive final frame for the Hurricanes, who overcame three deficits and a poor night of penalty-killing to send the Islanders to their fifth straight loss, 6-4 on Monday.
Carolina was still smarting from a 0-4 mark against the Islanders last season. New York seemed in line to get back to its winning ways, but it wasn't to be.
"We controlled the play well down low. We were smart with our decisions," said Hurricanes captain Eric Staal, who extended his point streak to eight games with a goal and assist in the third. "This was a good test for us, and we owed them from last season. This one felt very good."
Not so much for the Islanders, who finally figured out their power-play woes with fo...
BEST OF MAXIM
The playoff races are beginning to heat up in the CHL and the good news for Hurricanes fans is that many of the team's prospects should be in the post-season this spring, which will give everyone a chance to get a closer look at their performance. One team that has already clinched a playoff spot in Keegan Lowe's Edmonton Oil Kings and Lowe himself has played a pretty big...
Heading into this season, the Hurricanes had the making of being a team that could roll all four lines effectively. Even after they traded for enforcer Kevin Westgarth, they could have probably gotten away with rolling four lines because the forwards before him each have a defined role and aren't liabilities at even strength. You had the top-six handle most of the scoring and...
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jiri Tlusty and the Carolina Hurricanes concluded a grueling six-game road trip with a satisfying win over the Eastern Conference leading New Jersey Devils.
Tlusty scored two goals in the third period and Cam Ward made 26 saves as the Hurricanes beat the Devils 4-2 on Tuesday night, snapping New Jersey's five-game winning streak.
The Hurricanes had every...

TV: FS-Carolinas, MSG Plus
Despite the Hurricanes "so-so" 5-4-1 start to the year, they are still in the thick of things in the Southeast Division and are faced with a great opportunity in the latter stages of this road trip. They are still only one point out of first place thanks to a four-game losing...
I recently acquired a fantastic card with an even better story. 2005-2006 Upper Deck Rookie Update featured Rookie Inspirations Dual Autos from a great class of rookies. My main man Ryan Getzlaf is thankfully in the set, and when I came across the below beaut of him paired with Hurricanes' center Eric Staal, I couldn't pass it up. I out-waited high prices and eventually nabbed...
Tonight's 4-2 victory over the Devils was easily the Carolina Hurricanes biggest win of this young season. Not only does it clinch a 4-1-1 record on their road trip, but they were also able to get a win over a team that has been at the top of the Eastern Conference for most of the year. As expected, the win did not come easy as they found themselves down 1-0 in the first period...

The Hurricanes have a chance to end this six-game road trip on a high note by winning four out of six games and taking home nine out of a possible 12 points with a win tonight over the New Jersey Devils. At the beginning of the year, I said that the Hurricanes need to make it out of...
