Jordan Staal, Sutter score 57 seconds apart; Hurricanes top Islanders 3-2

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Jordan Staal and Brett Sutter scored 57 seconds apart in the second period, and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New York Islanders yet again, 3-2 on Saturday night for their third consecutive win.

Staal broke a tie with his ninth goal with 6:48 left in the second. Sutter stretched the Carolina lead to 3-1 with 5:51 to go with the second of his NHL career and first since his debut on Dec. 23, 2008 — a span of 50 games.

Manny Malhotra staked the Hurricanes to a 1-0 lead when he scored for a third straight game, connecting at 6:57 of the second with his fourth goal.

John Tavares answered 44 seconds later with his 17th for the Islanders, and Thomas Vanek scored with 24.2 seconds remaining, but New York had a season-best, three-game winning streak broken.

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.
