The Hurricanes dropped the puck in the 2021-22 season at PNC Arena Thursday night against the New York Islanders.

Here are some way too quick reactions throughout the game.

Second period

â–ª Frederick Andersen has a good glove and can move from left to right as well. But again, all of that evidence led to a goal for the Islanders. Brock Nelson made his way to the front of the cage from the right boards and his movement made Andersen move hard to his right. His pad was firm on the ice and held the line this time, but Nelson stayed with the puck and covered it … with Andersen’s pad and in the cage.

â–ª Jordan Martinook is a good “clingy” guy, perfect as a fourth-line plugger, and he brings energy to everything he does. Well, energy and comedy. On Thursday he also brought a goal. Martinook got his own rebound as he tried to roll the puck behind the cage. The puck took off from the Islands keeper in front and made its way into the low lunge. Martinook turned and slammed the puck off the left post to put the Canes back in the lead, 3-2.

â–ª Reviews are still taking too long. But the Canes are not complaining this time. Another review this time led to a Carolina goal, and a subsequent coaching challenge by Barry Trotz led to a Carolina power play. For the record, Nino Niederreiter scored this one, unassisted, after being transported to his own goalkeeper.

â–ª Help from his friends, Frederik Andersen a. Minutes after allowing Anders Lee a goal to bring the Isles back to a 4-3 goal, Andersen made a great save on the toes, but the rebound slipped through him. His defenders, and at least one forward, crashed into the crease and swept the puck out of harm’s way. Andersen was … an adventure.

First period

â–ª The Canes started the night with a team presentation ceremony, counting from the bottom up but saving the alternate captains and captain Jordan Staal for the end.

The loudest cheers from non-captains: Svechnikov, Kotkaniemi, DeAngelo.

â–ª The first five minutes were solid. The Canes kept the Islanders at bay in the neutral zone and did not allow any entry into the clean zone. The Isles struggled to cross the blue line and the Canes’ transition through the central zone was smooth.

â–ª The Canes’ power play was solid in possession of his first chance, when Brock Nelson went to the box to hook at 4:30 from the first. Tony DeAngelo was the PP QB, and they moved the puck well, but the shots didn’t hit the net against Ilya Sorokin.

â–ª Frederik Andersen can move well from right to left, but he couldn’t stop the first goal of the evening. The Canes starter appeared to stifle a chance from Matt Barzal at 7:23 from the first after a Kyle Palmieri cross eluded the Canes defender on play. At the first whistle after that save, at 9:30, officials were alerted to review play for the possibility that the puck crossed the line to hit Andersen’s pad behind the red stripe. Andersen was really in the back of the cage, and the review was conclusive.

â–ª Andrei Svechnikov has gentle hands. His goal on a wrist from Teuvo Teravainen at 9:15 tied the game at 1-1, a necessary response for the Canes following the replay-reviewed goal fiasco. Svechnikov has the ability, and now a contract to match. This season’s performance is essential for the young striker.

â–ª Scary moment for Sebastian Aho behind his own net as he took a hip blow (inadvertently) to the head of Brock Nelson. Brady Skjei went after Nelson to send a message, and Skjei got the only penalty. Aho was not raised by the NHL watcher. Cannes killed the penalty.

â–ª The traffic in front of the Isles net was good. The Canes place bodies in front and the puck to the cage through these bodies. This led to a second goal 13:57 from the first, when Jaccob Slavin won the face-off from Jordan Staal in the left circle, took a few steps forward and sent the puck towards the net. Jesper Fast was fighting in front of Ilya Sorokin and the keeper didn’t stand a chance. on the deviation.
