Hurricanes Defeat Islanders with Late Rapid-Fire Goals

Jack Drury and Stefan Noesen scored eight seconds apart to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 victory over the New York Islanders, advancing them to the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs and setting a franchise record for the fastest two goals in a playoff game.

The Carolina Hurricanes? Oh, they were on fire. They’d already smashed their own record for the quickest two goals in a playoff game. And guess what? They outdid themselves yet again. This time, by a whole second.

In the thick of it, during the early minutes of the third period, Jack Drury and Stefan Noesen happened. They scored back-to-back, just eight seconds apart. This wasn’t just any moment; it broke the tie.

And just like that, the Hurricanes surged ahead to a 6-3 victory. This win wasn’t ordinary—it catapulted them into the second round. They waved goodbye to the New York Islanders, right there in Game 5.

All of this went down on a Tuesday night. The place? PNC Arena, nestled in Raleigh, N.C. What a night, huh?
