Islanders, Hurricanes set for unlikely playoff matchup

The Carolina Hurricanes have waited almost 10 years to play in the second round of the NHL playoffs. It only seems like the New York Islanders have been waiting that long to play again, period, as they will be 10 days removed from their last game.

One of the numerous unexpected conference semifinals will finally begin Friday night, when the Islanders host the Hurricanes in a battle of Metropolitan Division rivals at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The Hurricanes, who are in the playoffs for the first time since 2009, advanced to the conference semifinals by overcoming a pair of two-goal deficits to edge the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, 4-3, in double overtime Wednesday night. The win capped a series of comebacks by Carolina, which trailed the series two games to none and fell behind three games to two with a 6-0 loss in Game 5 on Saturday night.
