RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Anthony Stewart and Jiri Tlusty scored third-period goals to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Joni Pitkanen scored on the power play and Cam Ward made 26 saves for the Hurricanes. They never trailed, claimed their first win and avoided matching their worst start since the lockout.

Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand scored and Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots for the Bruins, who have lost two straight and three of four.

The reigning Stanley Cup champions' power-play unit remained punchless. Boston came up empty on five chances with the man advantage to drop to 1 for 18 for the season.
