ELMONT, N.Y. — The Islanders' slide is continuing with little resistance. 

Doomed by a first period in which they conceded three goals across the final 7:12 of the frame, New York (Seth Jarvis scored twice over 2:05 in the first period while Martin Necas added a demoralizing third on the power play with 1.1 seconds to go in that first period for good measure to take advantage of the slumping Islanders’ netminder, Ilya Sorokin, who stopped 31 shots. Jake Guentzel also recorded an empty-net goal and two assists in the win.

The Islanders’ skid, which is coming on the heels of a six-game win streak, damages their playoff hopes further with every defeat as they are now entrenched firmly on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff picture looking in. The Carolina winger hopped on a loose puck in front of the Islanders’ net that was blocked by Jean-Gabriel Pageau and managed to finish from a tough angle by sliding the puck through a scrambling Sorokin’s legs.

Following an Adam Pelech penalty, Necas got Carolina’s third on the man advantage with 1.1 seconds left in the frame when he wove through the Islanders’ defense and snapped a wrister over the pad of Sorokin.
