Hurricanes Score 4 In 3rd, Rally Past Isles 6-4

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Alexander Semin netted his 200th NHL goal and Jiri Tlusty scored twice and had two assists for the Carolina Hurricanes, who scored four third-period goals and overcame three deficits and a poor night of penalty-killing to send the New York Islanders to their fifth straight loss, 6-4 on Monday.

Semin got help on his milestone goal as his shot from the right-wing boards hit the helmet of Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic and caromed off the post past goalie Rick DiPietro at 5:33 of the third period.

Carolina tied it 3-3 just 30 seconds into the third when Semin fed a pass to Tlusty for his first goal. Eric Staal scored at 9:09 to make it 5-3, and Tlusty added an empty-netter with 10.3 seconds remaining to give him a four-point night.
