Brind’Amour scores, adds two assists as Hurricanes beat Islanders 5-1

Justin Williams scored his fifth goal in a five-game span for the Hurricanes, who outshot New York 35-25 and matched a season high with their third straight victory.

Erik Cole, Eric Belanger and Scott Walker also scored, while Cory Stillman had three assists and Ray Whitney added two.

Carolina’s 26th-ranked power-play unit went four-of-nine against the Islanders’ 24th-ranked penalty-kill. It was the Hurricanes’ most productive performance on the power play since they scored five goals with the man advantage against Detroit on Nov. 29, 2002.
