RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Rod Brind'Amour had a goal and an assist, and the Carolina Hurricanes routed the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-2 on Saturday night.

Justin Williams, Ray Whitney, Eric Belanger and Chad LaRose also scored, and Kevyn Adams had an empty-net goal to help Carolina improve to 9-3-2 in its last 14 games.

John LeClair and Mark Recchi had second-period goals for Pittsburgh. The Penguins have lost five straight and have been outshot 179-101 during that slide.

Erik Cole had two assists in his first game against the player who nearly ended his career. Cole broke his neck last March when Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik rammed him into the boards, causing an injury that cost the Carolina forward three months.

Cam Ward, coming off his first career regular-season shutout two nights earlier against Washington, made 18 saves and improved to 4-1-0 in five career starts against the Penguins.

Jocelyn Thibault stopped 24 shots in his second start of the season.

Williams scored Carolina's first goal with a two-man advantage, tapping a loose puck past Thibault at 12:51. Whitney made it 2-0 5 minutes later, taking a pass from Cole and beating Thibault with a wrist shot.
