NY Islanders score in OT, beat Hurricanes 4-3

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Cal Clutterbuck scored a deflected goal with 13.8 seconds left in overtime, and the New York Islanders beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Saturday night.

Clutterbuck had two goals, with his first tying it 30 seconds into the third period. Nikolay Kulemin had a goal and an assist and Kyle Okposo also scored for the Islanders, who have won two of three over a four-day span.

Victor Rask, Jeff Skinner and Jeff McClement scored during a second-period flurry for the Hurricanes.

Jean-Francois Berube made 33 saves for New York while Eddie Lack stopped 27 shots for Carolina in a matchup of desperate Metropolitan Division teams.

Clutterbuck took a pass from Brock Nelson and unleashed a shot from between the circles that clipped off Carolina defenseman Jaccob Slavin’s chest and got past Lack.
