The New York Islanders entered tonight's game at UBS Arena in desperate need of a victory to avoid falling into a three games to none hole against the Carolina Hurricanes. And so far, Carolina has been a rude guest. 

Not only did defenseman Brent Burns break the ice in the 1st period to give Carolina the first goal of the game, but goaltender Frederik Andersen is clearly dialed in.

Right now, things are not looking good for the Islanders, who haven't done a good job in rebounding from their stunning collapse in Game 2.
