RALEIGH, N.C. (KDKA/AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins began a five-game road trip Friday night in Carolina. Unfortunately, the Penguins’ goal-scoring woes continued as the Hurricanes won 4-1.

Pascal Dupuis scored the Pens’ lone goal late in the second period off a rebound on a shot by Mike Rupp.  Zbynek Michalek picked up the other assist on the goal.

The Canes picked up their first goal just 1:44 into the first period when Jay Harrison scored on a snap shot. Later, Joe Corvo’s slap shot on the power play beat Marc-Andre Fleury with 3:17 left in the first  period to make it 2-0.

Erik Cole had a tip-in midway through the second period with assists from Eric Staal and Derek Joslin to make it 3-0, before Dupuis finally put the Pens on the board about five minutes later.

Jussi Jokinen made it 4-1 with a goal late in the third.

The Pens outshot Carolina 34-21. Fleury was pulled after allowing three goals on 11 shots. Brent Johnson came on and stopped nine of the 10 shots he faces in the game.

Carolina’s Cam Ward made 33 saves in the win.
