It’s pretty straightforward for the New York Islanders (5-4-1). They can extend their winning streak to three games , their point streak to four games and stay above .500 with a win Tuesday against Pittsburgh at PPG Paints Arena.Things are more complex for the Penguins (6-1-2). Under normal circumstances, they would simply be returning home triumphant after going 4-0 on a road trip through Canada that they claim helped them bond and set a tone for perhaps the rest of the season.But these aren’t normal circumstance. The Penguins will be juggling their emotions playing at home for the first time since a shooting Saturday at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill area of the city left 11 people dead.Article continues below ...“I think we’ve got to hold that stuff to our heart, but we’ve got to just keep playing hockey,” Penguins winger Bryan Rust said Monday after practice. “Despite that horrible tragedy, it’s going to bring the community closer together and, hopefully, we can help out with that a little bit. I think (a sporting event) can serve as a little bit of a distraction, kind of as a way for people to get their minds off something, have something good to cheer for, something to look forward to. But it’s really hard with a situation like this.”The Penguins learned of the shooting before their game Saturday at Vancouver, a 5-0 win during which coach Mike Sullivan said they played “with heavy hearts.”It might be magnified playing at home. The Penguins canceled a Halloween promotion and instead will be taking up a collection for victims’ families.“I think just keep that in the back of your mind, try to play for the city as we always do, but especially in times like this,” said Pittsburgh team captain Sidney Crosby. “It’s a terrible thing that happened, and we’re thinking about everyone involved. Hopefully, we can do all we can to support and help right now.”Crosby was named the NHL’s first star of the week that ended Sunday. He had five goals , seven points over the final three games of the road trip.In their four games, the Penguins outscored their opponents 23-6 with two shutouts, and they spent a weekend at a resort town in the Canadian Rockies.“That trip’s going to help us throughout the whole season,” goaltender Matt Murray said. “That was a big bonding experience for us.”Pittsburgh likely will be without center Derrick Brassard (lower body) for a second straight game, and could be without top defenseman Kris Letang, who left Monday’s practice early because of what Sullivan described as a nagging lower-body injury.The Islanders, who were off Monday following a 2-1 win Sunday against speedy Carolina, will be facing another team that relies on quickness in the Penguins.“I think it starts at the top. I think our staff does a good job of preparing us for these situations,” New York winger Josh Bailey told Newsday. “I think, as you get results, you start believing a little more.”First-year Islanders coach Barry Trotz, who coached Washington to the Stanley Cup last spring, has preached playing a responsible game because New York is not filled with stars as the Capitals and Penguins are.“We want to make sure we’re on the right side of the puck,” Trotz said. “In the past, guys would get on the wrong side of the puck but we just can’t. This team is not built like maybe some of the other teams or my previous team. We have some good players, but we don’t have as many of those game-breakers , so we’ve got to play a really a good team game.” RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Leon Draisaitl and the Edmonton Oilers just kept throwing the puck on net over and over. It was a sound strategy, considering just about every shot they took seemed to be going in.Draisaitl had a goal and three assists and the Oilers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 7-3 on Tuesday night.Drake Caggiula, Matt Benning and Ryan Strome scored in a span of 4:24 in the first period after Carolina jumped to a 1-0 lead, and Edmonton led the rest of the way. Pontus Aberg, Yohann Auvitu and Jesse Puljujarvi also scored as the Oilers got six goals on their first 22 shots. Cam Talbot made 30 saves for Edmonton.”We started well and that gave us confidence,” Draisaitl said. ”We kept going after them. Kept shooting the puck, kept getting the puck back. That was our game plan.”Brock McGinn, Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen scored for the Hurricanes, who have lost six of eight. Scott Darling allowed three goals on his first nine shots and six on 22 but was left in the game. He finished with 23 saves.As the final buzzer sounded, the Hurricanes were booed off the ice by the sparse group of fans still in the stands.”We have to come to work,” Carolina forward Jordan Staal said. ”We play in the NHL. We have this privilege to be here. We can’t lay eggs like that. We can’t just not work. It looks like that when we don’t and it’s no fun to play. It’s no fun to let each other down like that. ”The scoring began early in a wild, five-goal first period, including a few unusual tallies.McGinn opened the scoring with a no-look, through-the-legs backhand pass that was accidentally pushed in by Auvitu.Caggiula tied it 23 seconds after McGinn scored, and Benning gave the Oilers the lead with an extraordinary goal two minutes later. After his initial shot went off Darling’s leg pad and up onto the glass behind the net , Benning waited for the puck to come down, swung his stick like a baseball bat, and hit the puck off Darling’s back and into the net.”I just kind of tried to wait until the puck came down so I didn’t get high sticking and then just tried to throw it at him,” Benning said. ”It’s just kind of reactionary.”Strome finished the burst with another atypical goal. Darling stopped Strome’s stuff attempt, but the puck wiggled free, and defenseman Justin Faulk pushed it into his own net.Aho kept the Hurricanes within one with a power-play goal late in the first, but the Oilers scored three times again in the second period to turn it into a rout.Just 1:32 into the period, Faulk inexplicably backhanded a no-look pass from the corner to the front of his own net. Draisatl took the free puck and sent a pass to Aberg, who buried it along the inside post for his first goal as an Oilier since being acquired at the trade deadline.”We weren’t playing good from the start right through the end,” Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal said. ”It wasn’t a good effort from anybody.”Auvitu got in on the scoring midway through the second when he finished a 3-on-2 rush with a wrist shot past Darling’s glove, and Draisatl joined the party with a one-timer from the right faceoff circle, his 23rd this season. Puljujarvi provided the finishing touch when he gathered his own rebound and pushed a backhander through Darling’s legs.Carolina is still technically alive in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but its hopes are dwindling. The Hurricanes are nine points back with nine games to play.NOTESDraisaitl surpassed 200 career points. … Aberg also had two assists for his first career three-point game. .Aho and Teravainen extended their point streaks to six games. … Oilers F Connor McDavid played in his 200th NHL game. … Hurricanes D Noah Hanifin missed his second straight game with a concussion. … Oilers D Andrej Sekera and F Zack Kassian both missed the game with undisclosed injuries.UP NEXTOilers: At the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.Hurricanes: Host the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.—
