NHL Series: The Hurricanes have a chance to finish off the Islanders in Game 4

Recap: Hurricanes 2 – Islanders 2 (Overtime)

The Carolina Hurricanes could become the first team to advance to the second round of the playoffs on Saturday.

The New Yorkers once again found themselves up against the wall after losing 3-2 on Thursday. But Patrick Roy's forces will try to survive another day.

But the visitors scored the first goal for the third time in four matches, outnumbered.

Seth Jarvis (33-34), who is having his best season in his third year in the league, scored his second goal in the qualifiers 8 minutes after the start of the first half.

He and Andrei Svechnikov are the only players in the organization to have scored at least 10 goals in a playoff game before the age of 23.

Mathew Barzal equalized midway through the second half with his first goal of the playoffs.

The Islanders started the third period with a strong play and we took advantage of it. Jean-Gabriel Pageau opened his meter to give his team the lead.

However, Stefan Noysen brought everyone back to square one to force overtime.

The game of musical chairs didn't work at all for the Islanders goaltenders. After seeing Ilya Sorokin allow three goals on 14 shots on Thursday night, Roy sent veteran Semyon Varlamov into the fray this afternoon.

Brent Burns, Dmitry Orlov and Sebastian Aho scored in the latest win for his team. Pierre Engvall and Brock Nelson responded for the Isles, who dominated on an 11-3 shooting spree in the third period without finding a way to tie the game.

Only 4 teams out of 206 teams have been able to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a straight series. The Islanders also beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1975.

Striker Bo Horvat said: “We have a flexible group and everyone believes in our ability to succeed.” “Every time we were underestimated this year, we found a way to overcome it.”
