Raanta Leaves with Injury in Hurricanes’ 5-2 Win Over Islanders

The Carolina Hurricanes looked to extend their winning streak on Sunday afternoon when they took on the New York Islanders.

They closed things out with another important win, but they didn’t get it done without experiencing a good deal of turbulence.

Carolina wasted little time getting on the scoresheet.

After a big-time stop from Antti Raanta in the opening minute, Derek Stepan picked the pocket of an Islander defender and beat Semyon Varlamov to make it 1-0 just 2:25 into the opening period.

New York’s Kyle Palmieri got two minutes for hooking just over seven minutes into the game, and the Hurricanes’ power play made him regret it.
