BOSTON (AP) -- Cam Ward stopped 33 shots, and Carolina defenseman Joni Pitkanen had a goal and two assists to lead the Hurricanes to their second win over the Boston Bruins in a week, 4-1 on Tuesday night.
Tuomo Ruutu, Anthony Stewart and Eric Staal had the other goals for Carolina, which also beat the defending Stanley Cup champions 3-2 at home last Wednesday.
Rich Peverley had a power-play goal for the Bruins, who had a number of seemingly senseless penalties and dropped their third in four home games. Boston was whistled for 11 penalties in the second and third periods, many during scrums. The Hurricanes took five penalties during the last two periods
