Tlusty, Eric Staal Lead Hurricanes Past Pens 4-1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Jiri Tlusty had two goals and an assist, and the Carolina Hurricanes beat Pittsburgh 4-1 on Thursday night in ex-Penguin Jordan Staal's first game against his former team.

Eric Staal had a goal and two assists, Alexander Semin added two assists and Jeff Skinner scored a goal in his first game back from a concussion.

The Southeast Division co-leaders erased an early 1-0 deficit by scoring three goals in a span of 6 minutes, 14 seconds and won for just the second time in six games.

Chris Kunitz scored for the Penguins, who entered leading the Atlantic Division but were held without a power-play goal for the first time since Feb. 2.

Cam Ward made 26 saves for Carolina.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for the Penguins, who have lost the first two games of a three-game road swing.
