UNIONDALE, New York (Sat Oct 30 22:15:05 1999) -- Eric Fichaud came back to haunt his former team by recording his second career shutout and Jeff O'Neill had a power-play goal and two assists as the Carolina Hurricanes blanked the punchless New York Islanders, 4-0.

Sean Hill scored his first goal of the season and Sami Kapanen and David Tanabe added power-play markers for the Hurricanes, who have won the last six meetings with the Islanders.

Playing his first game against New York since being traded to Edmonton after the 1997-98 season, Fichaud made 24 stops, including 12 in the second period. His other shutout came as a member of the Islanders on April 6, 1996 against Buffalo.

O'Neill won a faceoff just under nine minutes into the first period and pulled the puck back to Hill at the right point. Hill fired a slap shot past a screened Felix Potvin for the only goal Fichaud needed.

O'Neill capped the scoring with 6:41 left in the third period when he one-timed Kapanen's pass from the right faceoff circle past a sprawled Potvin.

Winless in their last three games, the Islanders lost center Claude Lapointe, who left after the second period with a left knee injury.
