RALEIGH Minnesota Wild T-Shirts Womens , N.C. — Two teams feeling good after their most recent results meet Sunday when the New York Islanders face the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.The teams put together different types of inspirational victories in advance of this game, but the confidence might be brewing for both clubs.For the Islanders, it was Saturday afternoon’s 6-1 whipping of the Philadelphia Flyers for a strong start on a three-game road swing.Article continues below ...“They are games that mean a lot,” said Islanders center Anthony Beauvillier, who notched his first goal of the season Saturday. “All of us want to get rolling.”The Hurricanes rallied from two-goal deficits twice in Friday night’s 4-3 shootout victory over visiting San Jose. That was Carolina’s first shootout of the season.“I think it’s a big step for us,” said Hurricanes left winger Brock McGinn, who scored in regulation and in the shootout. “I think we need to keep this confidence going.”The Hurricanes might be further establishing an identity as they continue a good start to the season with a 6-3-1 record.“The way we won was important,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said of the most recent game. “We’re not going to quit, I know that about this group.” The Hurricanes became the first team this season to outshoot the Sharks in San Jose’s 10 games. Carolina held a 41-23 edge in shots, though it was fast paced for both sides at times.“That’s the way hockey should be played,” Brind’Amour said. “I know there were lots of mistakes. But I was on the edge of my seat, and I have a pretty good one.”The Islanders are still piecing together things under first-year coach Barry Trotz. On Sunday, they try to win consecutive games for the first time this season.“We’ve done a lot of good things Chris Terry Jersey Womens , haven’t always got the results we want,” Trotz said.Because of the Islanders’ wavering outcomes, there have been times when it’s hard to figure out the pulse of the team. For Trotz, he knows it will take time.“Part of the process is to understand, a lot of times with young players and even old players … to be a top player, you have to play (through it),” he said of certain struggles. “They can’t get frustrated. Make sure they play with a team concept and not try to do too much. … (They’re) getting used to us. We’re kind of retraining them a little bit.”Trotz said seeing how the Islanders develop during this road strip is crucial because there could be changes made with line combinations based on what the opponent is doing.“We’re trying to get some balance throughout the lineup,” Trotz said. “We need to be a little more consistent throughout our lineup. Stay out to the box, play our game and believe in what we’re doing.”Carolina center Sebastian Aho takes a 10-game points streak into Sunday’s game. He has an assist in every game this season, one game shy of matching Eric Staal for the franchise record of 11 consecutive games with an assist.Brind’Amour didn’t commit Saturday to using goalie Scott Darling for his season debut against the Islanders. He was activated for the last game but didn’t play. He’s coming off a groin injury suffered in the preseason finale.The teams opened the season against each other Oct. 4 in Raleigh, with the Islanders winning in overtime. NEW YORK — For the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers, eight meant different things in their previous games.The Sharks totaled eight goals in their first regulation win of the young season while the Rangers allowed eight in falling to 0-3-0.On Thursday, the teams will get together at Madison Square Garden where the Sharks will hope to keep the goals flowing while the Rangers will hope to avoid another ugly loss.Article continues below ...The Sharks (2-2-0) are heading back to New York following a dynamic 8-2 win in Philadelphia on Tuesday. After getting 35 shots on goal in Monday’s 4-0 loss to the New York Islanders Nick Foligno Jersey , San Jose saw 13 players get at least one point.“Sometimes that back-to-back game, you feel better for whatever reason,” Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. “You should be a little tired, but it woke our legs up a little bit. We moved a lot better, passing was cleaner.Pavelski and Evander Kane registered two goals and two assists apiece while playing on different lines after opening training camp as linemates. Pavelski scored the second and third goals while Kane netted the next two.“It’s early enough in the season where those back-to-back games aren’t as bad,” Kane said. “It was good to get a bunch of different guys on the board after getting shut out yesterday afternoon.”Pavelski scored his first two goals while Kane is up to four goals already. Kevin Lebanc tied a team record with four assists by setting up Pavelski’s two goals and Kane’s second goalIt was the first time since Oct. 8, 2013, that the Sharks scored eight goals. The opponent that night was the Rangers, who gave up nine goals early in a season that saw them lose in the Stanley Cup Final.The follow-up to San Jose’s last eight-goal showing was a 4-1 win at Vancouver, and the Sharks are hoping for a similar showing against the Eastern Conference’s only team without a point.The Rangers are 0-3-0 for the first time since 1998-99 after absorbing an 8-5 defeat Sunday at Carolina. After not getting a lead and scoring three goals in their first two losses, the Rangers held the lead four times before allowing four goals in the final 15 minutes.The last time the Rangers began a season with four straight losses was also 1998-99, the second of their seven straight seasons out of the playoffs.New York followed that rough stretch by making the playoffs in 10 of 12 seasons and is experiencing rough patches in its rebuilding efforts so far under first-year coach David Quinn.While wholesale changes are not looming, it is possible defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk could be a healthy scratch. Knee surgery cost him 36 games last season Authentic Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey , his plus-minus rating is minus-4 and his ice time was 7:29 Sunday.“You have to learn from it, obviously,” Shattenkirk told reporters. “I’m not a guy that would take that the wrong way and mope about it.”Another change could be on New York’s No. 1 line. Based on line combinations in practice this week, rookie center Brett Howden may start on the top line flanked by Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello.Howden made the team out of training camp after being acquired from Tampa Bay as part of the return in the deal involving J.T. Miller and Ryan McDonagh. In three games, he has a goal and two assists.“He’s getting more comfortable for sure,” Quinn told reporters at practice Tuesday. “As most first-year players in this league get when they have a little bit of success, there’s a confidence level that grows.”Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist did not play Sunday but is expected to start Thursday. Martin Jones is likely to start for San Jose.Since San Jose’s 9-2 win over the Rangers five years ago, New York is 5-3-1 in the last nine meetings. Last season, the Sharks posted a 4-1 victory in New York on Oct. 23, while the Rangers recorded a 6-5 win in San Jose on Jan. 25.
