PITTSBURGH — PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jussi Jokinen collected his first hat trick in nearly six years and the Pittsburgh Penguins pulled away from the Carolina Hurricanes for a 5-2 win Tuesday night.

Jokinen helped the Penguins improve to 3-0, opening the scoring in the first period and adding two goals in the third after Carolina drew even at 2-2.

Paul Martin and Tanner Glass also scored for Pittsburgh, while Sidney Crosby picked up his first two assists of the season. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 32 shots for the Penguins, who have not trailed through three games. Pittsburgh has outscored opponents 12-3 while getting off to the franchise's best start since 1994-95.

Eric Staal and Nathan Gerbe scored for the Hurricanes and Cam Ward made 32 saves.
