RALEIGH www.officialbruinsproonline.com , N.C. (AP) — Andrei Svechnikov long dreamed of scoring his first NHL goal. It could not have come at a better time for the Carolina Hurricanes.Warren Foegele had two goals and an assist, Svechnikov got his first career goal to snap a tie midway through the third period, and the Hurricanes rallied to beat the New York Rangers 8-5 on Sunday.Svechnikov, the No. 2 overall pick in June’s draft, deflected Justin Faulk’s shot in front of the net with 9:16 remaining to break a 5-5 tie and give the Hurricanes their first lead. Foegele followed with his second goal 47 seconds later and Teuvo Teravainen added an empty-netter to secure Carolina’s first home win under new coach Rod Brind’Amour.“I waited for this my whole life,” said the 18-year-old Svechnikov, who became the first NHL player born in the 2000s to score a goal. “This was my dream, and my dream came true.”Svechnikov’s go-ahead score was one of four unanswered goals by the Hurricanes in the third period as they erased a 5-4 deficit. Lucas Wallmark scored the tying goal for the Hurricanes with 14:59 left.Jordan Martinook, Jordan Staal and Micheal Ferland also scored and Justin Williams had three assists for Carolina.The Rangers had leads of 2-0, 3-2, 4-3 and 5-4 and failed to hold each of them.“Even when we got down two, thankfully it was early, you could just feel it on the bench: There was no panic, there was no ‘Oh man we’re not coming back.’ It was ‘Ok, let’s just get to our game and we’ll see what happens,'” said Brind’Amour, who picked up his first win Friday on the road at Columbus. “I think that’s a real positive, especially with the young guys. Maybe they don’t know any better. I just liked that they kept digging in.”Jimmy Vesey and Chris Kreider each scored twice and Pavel Buchnevich added a goal for New York Boston Bruins T-Shirts Authentic , which remains winless in three games under new coach David Quinn.“Defensively we looked like we had never gone over these coverages or anything we had been working on,” Quinn said. “We had a hard time handling success tonight. When we got up, we didn’t pay attention to detail in the same situation.”Petr Mrazek made 19 saves for the Hurricanes and Alexandar Georgiev had 32 for the Rangers in a wild offensive game.The teams combined for four goals in each of the first two periods and were tied 4-4 heading to the third.Vesey and Kreider scored on the Rangers’ first two shots of the game, only to have the Hurricanes battle back.Foegele and Martinook scored to pull the Hurricanes into a 2-2 tie by the end of the first. Vesey again opened the scoring with a quick goal in the second, and again Carolina responded. Just as the Hurricanes killed off a 4-on-3 power play, a long pass from Jaccob Slavin and chip ahead from Foegele set Staal loose on a breakaway, and the Carolina veteran forward finished it off a vicious wrister over Georgiev’s blocker.Buchnevich gave the Rangers the lead once again in the second when he stuffed home a rebound on a power play, but a critical mistake by Georgiev allowed the Hurricanes to tie it back up in the final seconds of the period. As the clock moved under a minute, the Rangers’ goalie left his crease to try and clear a puck out of the corner. His clearing attempt went right to Ferland at the point, and Ferland flipped a wrister over Georgiev’s shoulder as he raced back to his net, making it a 4-4 game with 31 seconds left in the second period.“A lot of it was sloppy puck management,” Quinn said. “Making bad decisions, vacating the net front.We’ve got to learn to handle a little bit of success.”It was more of the same in the third.Kreider gave the Rangers the lead again, only to have Wallmark tie it 35 seconds later.This time though, the Hurricanes charged ahead, taking their first lead on Svechnikov’s tally and piling on from there.“Every time we were down coach just told us just keep going, play hard, and we did our job Boston Bruins Hoodies Authentic ,” Svechnikov said. “It was good.”When the final buzzer sounded, the entire Hurricanes team lined up along the blue line, began clapping over their heads in synch with the crowd, and then raced down the ice and jumped into the boards behind the net in celebration, bringing the crowd to a frenzy.“We want to have fun when you win,” Brind’Amour said. “The game should be fun. That’s what we’re doing. I want the players to enjoy winning and the fans to enjoy being here and our owner has been pushing that all the way, making it a fun experience for all involved, why wouldn’t you try something a little different? I’m happy the guys did something.”NOTES: The game marked the first time in Whalers/Hurricanes franchise history the team overcame four separate deficits to win. … Vesey has more goals (six) and points (eight) against the Hurricanes than any other team in his career. … Hurricanes F Martin Necas recorded his first career point with an assist on Foegele’s first-period goal. … The Rangers swept the season series against the Hurricanes last season 4-0-0. … Hurricanes F Staal and Rangers D Marc Staal are brothers and alternate captains for their respective teams. … The Hurricanes scratched D Haydn Fleury and F Valentin Zykov. … The Rangers scratched F Vinni Lettieri, F Cody McLeod and D Fredrik Claesson.UP NEXTRangers: Host San Jose on Thursday night.Hurricanes: Host Vancouver on Tuesday night. BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Robin Lehner made an emotional return to Buffalo and led the Islanders to a milestone victory for New York coach Barry Trotz.Lehner made 39 saves against his former team as the Islanders beat the Sabres 3-1 on Monday night.New York’s fourth straight victory moved Trotz into fourth place on the NHL’s all-time win list with 783, moving him ahead of Islanders franchise legend Al Arbour.“You get into coaching, you talk about certain names that you have respect for,” Trotz said before Monday’s game. “When you hear someone say, ‘Hey, you and Al Arbour,’ I feel a little out of place. It’s a total honor to be even mentioned.”Trotz said the Islanders players understood the significance of his passing Arbour, but the team was more proud of getting a win for Lehner in his first game back in Buffalo since March 29.Lehner left that game against Detroit because of a panic attack and was subsequently treated for alcohol addiction and also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, ADHD and PTSD. He signed with the Islanders in July after three seasons with the Sabres.“This one felt good Boston Bruins Hats Authentic ,” Lehner said. “It was probably the hardest game I’ve played in my career. I don’t know why. It’s just a really weird feeling for me. I struggled mentality a little bit in the beginning of the game. It just felt weird. Somehow just got in the flow.”Lehner continued his hot play, winning his fourth start in a row and allowing one goal or fewer in regulation for the seventh time in eight games.“He was unbelievable,” defenseman Nick Leddy said. “He made some extremely timely saves and he was our best player.”Leddy, Brock Nelson and Ryan Pulock scored for the Islanders, who won for the seventh time in eight games.Kyle Okposo scored and Carter Hutton stopped 30 shots for Buffalo, which has lost three in a row and five of six.The Sabres played most of the game without captain Jack Eichel, who went to the dressing room late in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.Eichel, a game-time decision by coach Phil Housley, started and played four shifts totaling 2:42. He sat out practice on Sunday.“I don’t think he’s going to be out long,” Housley said.Leddy gave the Islanders the lead 2:30 into the second period. Leo Komarov won a face-off in the offensive zone and Mathew Barzal sent the puck back to Leddy, who unleashed a slap shot from the left point that sailed through traffic and over Hutton’s shoulder into the far corner of the net.Nelson made it 2-0 in the opening minutes of the third period, scoring on a shot from the slot that bounced out of Hutton’s glove and into the net.The Sabres made a push in the third period, ending Lehner’s shutout bid and nearly coming back from the two-goal deficit.Okposo snapped a 21-game goal drought on a power play with 9:46 remaining. While Barzal served a slashing penalty, Okposo beat Lehner with a wrist shot from the right circle.Buffalo was unable to take advantage of an opportunity to tie the game on a power play that began with 6:53 left in the period.Lehner recorded an assist on Pulock’s empty-net goal with 31.4 seconds remaining.Trotz’s milestone victory comes in his first season with the Islanders. After coaching the Washington Capitals to the Stanley Cup last season, Trotz resigned following a contract dispute. He led the Capitals to 205 regular-season victories in four years and had 557 wins in 15 seasons with the Nashville Predators.Arbour tallied 740 of his 782 coaching victories during three stints with the Islanders, from 1973-86, 1988-94 and for one game during the 2007-08 season. New York won four consecutive Stanley Cups (1980-83) under Arbour. He began his coaching career with the St. Louis Blues.NOTES: Lehner played in Buffalo for the first time since signing with the Islanders in free agency following three seasons as the Sabres’ top goaltender. He received a mix of cheers and boos when acknowledged on the video scoreboard early in the first period. . Barzal extended his points streak to five games. He has six goals and three assists in that stretch. . Sabres LW C.J. Smith made his season debut after being called up from the minors earlier Monday.UP NEXTIslanders: Will look to match their season-long win streak at home against Chicago on Thursday.Sabres: Host Panthers on Thursday.
