Walker scores twice as Hurricanes capture 3-2 victory over Penguins

The loss spoiled a record-setting night for Pittsburgh sophomore centre Sidney Crosby, who became the youngest NHL player to reach 200 career points with a goal in the first period. The 19-year-old already was the youngest player to start the all-star game since fan voting began in 1986.

Frantisek Kaberle also scored the Hurricanes, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Ryan Malone tied the game 2-2 in the second with his 13th goal of the season, but the Penguins lost for the fourth time in six games.
