The Islanders gave up three straight third period goals before Mike Sillinger scored to tie it up late and Tom Poti scored in OT. Charles Wang will be happy to see his long-term investments Alexei Yashin (4 pts) and Rick Dipietro (37 saves) were the key players in tonight's win.
Carolina lost their second straight and finally come home after an unimpressive road trip where they went 3-4.
For a great example of how there are way too many divisional games, the Canes play six of their first 11 against Atlanta and Tampa Bay - is this really necessary?
