NHL Game Summary - Vancouver at Boston



(Tuesday, February 4th)

Final Score: Boston 3, Vancouver 1

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tuukka Rask stopped 27 shots and Jarome Iginla contributed a goal and an assist in Boston's 3-1 victory against Vancouver at TD Garden.

Milan Lucic and Daniel Paille also registered goals for the Bruins, winners of two in a row and six of their last seven.

"I thought it was a strong game, the guys worked hard," said Bruins captain Zdeno Chara.

Raphael Diaz netted the lone score for the Canucks, who have dropped five straight, including the first three on their current five-game road trip.

Roberto Luongo made 29 saves in the loss.

"Good teams find a way to collect points and we're not doing that right now," Luongo lamented.

Lucic opened the scoring at 5:12 of the first period, scoring high to the blocker side to complete a 3-on-2 rush.

Seconds after Rask stoned Daniel Sedin on a short-handed breakaway, Iginla gave the hosts a 2-0 edge at 7:59 of the second period.

Diaz, newly acquired from Montreal, put the Canucks on the board with 8:32 remaining when Rask failed to glove his knuckling shot from the right point.

Just over two minutes later, it appeared to be 3-1 for Boston as Brad Marchand beat Luongo from the top of the right circle. The goal was negated when officials ruled B's defenseman Torey Krug impeded the Vancouver netminder.

Paille then surged ahead of the field thanks to a Johnny Boychuk lead pass and scored with a backhander to make it a two-goal margin inside of three minutes left.

Both clubs attacked in a spirited but scoreless third period, with Boston peppering Luongo with 14 shots and the Canucks forcing Rask to make nine stops.

Luongo was sent to the bench for an extra skater with 1:53 to play, and the hosts had the better of the chances, failing multiple times to record an empty-net score.

Game Notes

The Bruins snapped a two-game home slide against the Canucks, posting their first win against their Tuesday foes on Causeway Street since a 2-0 result on Dec. 21, 2006 ... Boston also upped its lifetime home mark against Vancouver to 40-9-7 ... Both clubs are off until Thursday, when the Bruins head to St. Louis and the Canucks travel to Montreal.
