Penguins surge in third to down Hurricanes

James Neal recorded a goal and one assist as goal third period to defeat Carolina, 4-2, at CONSOL Energy Center.

Steve Sullivan, Pascal Dupuis and Jordan Staal lit the lamp in the final 20 minutes for the Penguins, who have won four straight games.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 16-of-18 shots for the victory.

Tuomo Ruutu and Tim Brent scored for the Hurricanes, whose two-game win streak was halted.

Pressed into service because of games on consecutive nights in two locations, Justin Peters took the loss despite making a career-best 48 saves.
