  • National Hockey League roundup: Hurricanes make history with win

The Islanders last faced Carolina in the second round of the playoffs in May.

Carolina were looking to extend its historic start with a home game scheduled for late last night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We knew it was gonna be a tough game, and the guys dug in", Brind'Amour said.

Erik Haula scored his fourth goal of the season to break a second-period tie, and the undefeated Carolina Hurricanes set some team history in a 5-2 victory against the New York Islanders on Friday night in Raleigh, North Carolina.

"I think it's his commitment, totally", Brind'Amour said. "We want to play for ourselves and play for the fans".

This season the Islanders offense is fairly consistent as they have managed to get 2.33 goals a game on the year.

Carolina Hurricanes left wing Erik Haula (56) is congratulated after his second period goal against the New York Islanders at PNC Arena.

"I thought they were pressing quite a bit there", Haula said of the Islanders. "I saw Svech got the puck, he rolled it around and he made a great play, and I found the net". So it was good. "It's nice to play with the lead and have it going into the third". Peter Mrazek stopped 17 of 19 shots in goal.

"I saw they were kind of scrambled, their forwards", Pesce said.

Teuvo Teravainen, Brett Pesce and Eric Haula also scored, and Nino Neiderreiter added a pair of assists for the Hurricanes, whose previous best start was 4-0-0 in 1995-96. "The 5-0 is kind of irrelevant". "We're trying to win the day, and that's the mentality of these guys. That's what we're trying to sell here, and so far they're buying into it".

The Canes, who host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, learned this week that forward Jordan Martinook would need surgery to fix a core muscle injury, sidelining him for six to eight weeks.

Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy and forward Casey Cizikas each missed the game with an undisclosed injury.

No defenseman gets into the play on offense for the Hurricanes more than Hamilton, who assisted on Teravainen's game-opening goal just under four minutes in.

"I was shooting the whole way, and then you gotta pass when it's that easy", Hamilton said.

Brock Nelson and Johnny Boychuk scored power-play goals for the Islanders. Thomas Greiss made 35 saves.

Penalty killing has been spotty early in the season for the Canes, who have given up six power-play goals in the first five games. All Teravainen had to do was tap the puck into the net.

Nelson scored eight seconds into an Islanders power play to tie the game 1-1 at 8:36.

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 now leads the Hurricanes in points - sitting with his lone goal, an empty netter, and seven assists.

The penalty call that led to the second goal had Brind'Amour furious with the officiating crew of Tim Peel and Pierre Lambert. "I've got puck-luck and hopefully it continues". So at least I would have liked to talk it out. Instead, I'll do a report for one team, then a different blog for the other and just rotate who gets what. "We've just got to keep working on focusing on day-by-day and move on already to tomorrow and get ready for that game".

Notes: Pesce had a career-high six shots on goal.
