RALEIGH Adidas Xavier Ouellet Jersey , N.C. (AP) After allowing 19 goals in his previous four games, Thomas Greiss finally had the breakthrough night he and the New York Islanders were looking for.Greiss stopped 45 shots for his first shutout of the season, and the Islanders beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0 on Friday night.”He was great,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said. ”He was confident. He came in and did a job. He made the saves he had to.”Article continues below ...Johnny Boychuk, Anthony Beauvillier and John Tavares scored for the Islanders, who moved past the Hurricanes into the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Greiss got his eighth career shutout one night after Jaroslav Halak had 50 saves in a 3-0 home win against the crosstown-rival Rangers.”It was a huge win for us, especially after emotional last night at home,” Islanders center Brock Nelson said. ”Both goaltenders were crucial. That was a big push for us, to get four points.”Cam Ward finished with 20 saves for the Hurricanes Adidas Tomas Tatar Jersey , who lost their second straight and fell into a tie with Columbus one point behind the Islanders for the conference’s last playoff spot.Jeff Skinner had his game-tying goal in the third period waved off after a replay review ruled he was offside when he entered the zone.”By an inch, maybe,” Skinner said. ”It was tough..I tried to slow up as best I could. I should’ve probably dragged my foot. It was close.”Carolina failed to get a better scoring chance the rest of the night despite getting nearly twice as many shots as the Islanders.The Hurricanes outshot the Islanders 16-7 in the first period and 28-15 through the second. Greiss kept Carolina off the scoreboard with a superb effort, turning aside scoring chance after scoring chance.”We owed him at least one good game in front of him,” Beauvillier said. ”He was really good tonight. He made some unbelievable stops.”Greiss’ work bought the Islanders’ offense time to get going, and it finally broke through near the midpoint of the second period.After a battle behind the Hurricanes net, Nelson fished out a rolling puck along the boards and pushed it to Boychuk at the right point. With the puck still rolling, Boychuk fired a slap shot that wiggled and elevated over Ward’s shoulder into the upper left corner of the net for his fourth of the season.Skinner thought he tied the game four minutes into the third when he flipped a loose puck in front of the net over Greiss’ glove. But a coach’s challenge by the Islanders forced a video review, and officials ruled the puck was offside on Carolina’s zone entry.”Before it ever went in I was told it was offside on the entry Adidas Dan Hamhuis Jersey , so I wasn’t surprised,” Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. ”Disappointed obviously, but we knew.”The dejected Hurricanes got only one shot off in the next eight minutes, at which point Beauvillier put the game away. He picked up a mishandled pass at the Islanders blue line, split two Carolina defenders, skated the length of the ice and pushed a shot under Ward’s pads despite being hooked by Noah Hanifin.”I just saw that fumbled puck at the blue line there and just tried to get my speed going, try get on the breakaway,” Beauvillier said of his 14th of the season. ”I kind of closed my eyes when I shot at the net there. It was getting pretty tight with the goalie.”Tavares was awarded a goal, his 30th Adidas Eric Tangradi Jersey , after he was tripped from behind as he approached the empty net with 32 seconds left to finish it.NOTES: The back-to-back shutouts by the Islanders were their first two of the season. … Boychuk’s goal was his first since Nov. 22 against Philadelphia. He also scored against the Hurricanes on Nov. 16. … Skinner’s waved off goal would have been the 200th goal of his career. … The Hurricanes saw their home win streak snapped at three games.UP NEXTIslanders: Host Minnesota on Monday.Hurricanes: Host New Jersey on Sunday. OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Jean-Gabriel Pageau has scored a few highlight-reel goals for Ottawa. Thursday’s winner is going to stand out among them.Pageau scored on a penalty shot in overtime to lift the Ottawa Senators over the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Thursday night.Pageau beat goalie James Reimer five-hole on the winner.”I was pretty tired and just tried to get my breath back and that’s the only move I know so I just tried to do it again and obviously it worked again,” said Pageau, who also scored in regulation.The Panthers dropped three points behind New Jersey with a game in hand for the final wild card in the Eastern Conference. The Devils lost to Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime Thursday.”Any other time of year you play a back-to-back game and you get a point out of the building on a back-to-back you’d be happy with it,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. ”Obviously two points are what matter the most for us in the race that we’re in. We saw what was happening on the scoreboard on the Jumbotron, and it was a chance to gain a point on a team we’re chasing and we didn’t get it done.”Magnus Paajarvi also scored in regulation for the Senators, and Craig Anderson stopped 24 shots.”It was time because we deserved the last game and we deserved this one,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. ”I think Reimer has played terrific against us this year, and I’ve been told it’s not just this year for some reason Adidas Adam Pelech Jersey , and he was doing it again tonight. I thought we deserved more goals than that.”Aaron Ekblad and Evgeni Dadonov scored for the Panthers, and Reimer made 27 saves.Both teams had several chances in overtime before Pageau converted with 16 seconds left after being tripped by Mike Matheson on a breakaway.Paajarvi tied it 16 seconds into the third period by tipping Zack Smith’s shot.Erik Karlsson assisted on Paajarvi’s goal for his 50th of the season. It’s his fifth time reaching the mark.Pageau had a number of chances in the second period and made good on one and was robbed on another.Ottawa took a 1-0 lead on Pageau’s 13th as he chased down his own shot that went wide and tucked it in behind Reimer 1:24 into the period.The Panthers tied it with a power-play goal when Ekblad tied a franchise record for goals by a defenseman with his 16th. Just 1:31, later Florida took the lead as Dadonov took a pass in the slot and rang a shot in off the post.Pageau looked like he had a sure goal late in the period, but Reimer made a great glove save to preserve the lead.The Senators appeared to open the scoring at the 14-minute mark as Pageau broke in on Reimer, but upon review it was ruled the puck never crossed the goal line.NOTES: Ottawa D Chris Wideman was shut down for the season with a hamstring injury. … Ottawa F Mark Stone skated Thursday and is hopeful of playing soon. Stone missed his tenth straight game with a leg injury. … Senators F Marian Gaborik missed his fourth straight game with an undisclosed injury. … Florida’s Maxim Mamin, Radim Vrbata, Connor Brickley, Micheal Haley and Ian McCoshen were healthy scratches.UP NEXTPanthers: Play at Boston on Saturday.Senators: Play at Detroit on Saturday.—
