RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes no longer have Jeff Skinner but welcomed him back Friday.

BOX SCORE: ISLANDERS 3, SABRES 1 Lehner, who signed with the Islanders in July after three seasons with the Sabres, carried a shutout deep into the third and has allowed just two goals on his last 144 shots faced over his last five appearances (four starts).

Not that everyone treated Skinner warmly at PNC Arena. While Skinner did have a power-play goal for the Buffalo Sabres, the Canes' Sebastian Aho, in one second-period exchange, knocked the winger to the ice, then gave him a few rude shoves after Skinner was back up.


Nor did Aho go easy on the Sabres. While Skinner was once the Canes' rising young star and big fan favorite, Aho now is that guy, and his two goals spurred a 4-3 victory.

Aho called both of his goals lucky and there was some luck involved, as the puck went off Sabres defensemen each time - first Rasmus Dahlin, then Jake McCabe - and past goalie Carter Hutton. And Micheal Ferland, who had the Canes' first goal and added two assists, scored on a freak play that also had Hutton shaking his head.

Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon said trading forward Jeff Skinner was not a hard decision. Skinner said it’ s nice to be playing for a team that Skinner , 26, said Friday he was excited about Thursday’ s trade to the Buffalo Sabres , about joining another team with a young core of players, one

Ferland, back on Aho's line with Teuvo Teravainen, had a shot go off Hutton's glove, pop up and on top of the net, hit the back frame and drop back to the ice behind Hutton. Sabres' defenseman Marco Scandella tried to play the puck but nicked it enough to nudge it in the net, Scandella draping himself over the cage in disgust.

Add in a one-punch victory in a fight by Canes defenseman Justin Faulk, another goal by captain Justin Williams, some timely penalty killing and enough stops from goalie Curtis McElhinney and it was enough to help the Canes erase some of the disappointment of Thursday's game at Tampa Bay.

Ferland had the first three-point game of his career and Teravainen added two assists as the top line produced seven points. As for Williams, the Canes captain now has goals in four straight games and points in six.

The Canes, playing one of their best games of the season, led the Lightning 1-0 with eight minutes left in regulation, only to allow two power-play goals and an empty-netter in a 3-1 loss. It was a gut-punch kind of loss, ending a five-game win streak, and one that had Canes coach Rod Brind'Amour wondering how much of a physical and emotional toll it would have with another game Friday.

In came Skinner and the Sabres. That added another level of excitement, and the crowd was large and lively, giving Skinner an ovation during a video-board tribute in the first period.

Ferland's goal gave the Canes a 1-0 lead, but Skinner answered on the power play, knocking the puck out of the air and past McElhinney. Sabres fans in the crowd roared and some Canes fans probably applauded the player who spent eight seasons in a Carolina uniform and provided a lot of thrills and highlights wearing No. 53.

The goal was Skinner's 30th of the season, marking the fourth time in his career he has reached the 30-goal plateau. It also made him the first Buffalo player to reach 30 since Jason Pominville in 2011-12.

The second period was a wild one. Williams scored with a sweet move around the Sabres' Tage Thompson and bar-down shot against Hutton.

Pominville responded 30 seconds later with a shot from the slot but Aho took it from there.

His first goal came when he centered a pass to Teravainen, the puck hitting Dahlin's skate in front. The second came after a Ferland shot, Aho collecting the puck and circling the net for a wraparound, the puck going off McCabe and leaking through Hutton.
