Hurricanes devastate Isles

And the show has reached a new low.

This was not the effort the Islanders were looking for. Entering Wednesday night with a four-game losing streak, the Isles were absolutely throttled by the Carolina Hurricanes in a 7-2 bludgeoning.

Game Story | Box Score

Nothing went right for the Islanders, who fell behind 5-0 and have now allowed an average of five goals per game during their five-game tumble. Their defense was thought to have been much improved during the team’s hot start to the season. Now it seems to have been a mirage. They currently sit at the bottom of the NHL in goals allowed.
