Description: Islanders forward Brock Nelson scored two goals to help New York score the first three goals against the Hurricanes in the season opener, and the Islanders won, 5-2.
Insight: Two of the first three Islanders' goals came on the power play with the other coming about one second after a Hurricane penalty expired. For all intents and purposes, the Islanders scored all three goals on the man advantage because Carolina still did not have their fifth guy in position. Nelson also added two assists and finished plus-two.
