PITTSBURGH (AP) -- James Neal had a goal and an assist, and Pittsburgh fired a barrage of shots at Carolina goalie Justin Peters before finally breaking him in a 4-2 victory over the Hurricanes on Tuesday night that stretched the Penguins' winning streak to four games.
Neal scored his 21st goal, one behind the NHL leaders. He has scored in every game of the Penguins' winning streak and has 14 goals in 16 home games.
Pittsburgh outshot Carolina 52-18, giving Peters a difficult test in his season debut. Peters finished with 48 saves, including 36 on the first 37 shots he faced.
Steve Sullivan gave Pittsburgh the lead 1:18 into the third, and Pascal Dupuis scored 70 seconds later for the Penguins, 5-3 since captain Sidney Crosby's latest concussion absence. Jordan Staal added a goal.
