NEW YORK (AP) — Ron Hainsey scored at 2:21 of overtime to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

Brock McGinn and Chris Terry scored in regulation to help Carolina win its second straight to cap a 4-3-0 road trip. Eddie Lack stopped 17 shots.

Hainsey took a pass from Jordan Staal and slid the puck past Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss near the midpoint of the extra period for his second of the season. Terry had tied the score with 5:04 left in the third, finishing off a slick passing play with Eric and Jordan Staal. The goal was Terry’s second of the season.

Matt Martin and Frans Nielsen scored for the Islanders, and Greiss finished with 26 saves.
