UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Alexander Semin netted his 200th NHL goal, Jiri Tlusty scored twice and had two assists, and Carolina scored four third-period goals and overcame three deficits to send New York to its fifth straight loss.
Semin got help on his milestone goal as his shot from the right-wing boards hit the helmet of Islanders defenceman Travis Hamonic and caromed off the post past goalie Rick DiPietro at 5:33 of the third period.
Carolina tied it 3-3 just 30 seconds into the third when Semin fed a pass to Tlusty for his first goal. Eric Staal scored at 9:09 to make it 5-3, and Tlusty added an empty-netter with 10.3 seconds remaining to give him a four-point night.
