Erik Haula scored his fourth goal of the season to break a second-period tie, and the undefeated Carolina Hurricanes set some team history in a 5-2 victory against the New York Islanders on Friday night in Raleigh, N.C. The Hurricanes improved to 5-0-0 for the best five-game start in franchise history.

Teuvo Teravainen, Brett Pesce, Dougie Hamilton, and Andrei Svechnikov also scored for Carolina, which never trailed for the second game in a row after three comeback victories. Nino Niederreiter supplied two assists. Brock Nelson and Johnny Boychuk scored power-play goals for the Islanders. Jordan Eberle had two assists for New York, and Nelson had one.

Ducks 2, Blue Jackets 1 Ryan Miller made 26 saves and visiting Anaheim beat Columbus.

Jakob Silfverberg scored short-handed and Cam Fowler also had a goal for Anaheim, which was coming off its first loss of the season, a 2-1 defeat at Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Miller, 39, was making his first start of the season after backing up John Gibson the first four games. He now has four shutouts and a 1.94 goals-against average in 14 career games against Columbus.

Sabres 3, Panthers 2 (SO) Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt scored in the game-ending shootout as host Buffalo edged Florida.

Buffalo led 2-0 in the third period before Evgenii Dadonov and Mike Hoffman scored. Hoffman's goal with just 10.4 seconds left in the third period, off a Dadonov assist, forced overtime. In the shootout for the Panthers, Vincent Trocheck was stopped by Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark, and captain Aleksander Barkov hit the near post.
