Ehrhoff scores 1st of season, lifts Penguins to 3-2 win over Hurricanes @NHLdotcom

RALEIGH, N.C. - Christian Ehrhoff scored his first goal of the season with 4:33 remaining, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Robert Bortuzzo's first-period goal gave Pittsburgh a 2=1 lead, and the Penguins held on to avenge a 4-2 home loss to Carolina on Friday.

Ehrhoff followed his backhanded shot and put in a wide-angle forehand on the rebound to make it a two-goal edge in the third.

Justin Faulk put the Hurricanes ahead 1-0 with a power-play goal in the first ? just 17 seconds before Chris Kunitz tied it for Pittsburgh ? and Elias Lindholm cut Carolina's deficit to 3-2 with 11.7 seconds left in the game.

Thomas Greiss made 32 saves for Pittsburgh (16-5-2), which avoided its first losing streak in regulation games this season. Anton Khudobin had 30 saves for the Hurricanes, 1-11-2 when trailing after two periods.
