Jarome Iginla and Milan Lucic each have goal and assist for Bruins in 3-1 win over Canucks

BOSTON - Jarome Iginla and Milan Lucic each had a goal and an assist for the Boston Bruins in a 3-1 win Tuesday night over the slumping Vancouver Canucks, who lost their fifth straight.

Daniel Paille also scored for Boston and Tuukka Rask made 27 saves against the road-weary Canucks, who were coming off 2-0 loss in Detroit the night before.

Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk added assists as Boston won for the sixth time in seven games.

Roberto Luongo stopped 29 shots for Vancouver, which played its second game since coach John Tortorella came back from a 15-day suspension. His return hasn't halted Vancouver's slide — the Canucks lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Raphael Diaz pulled Vancouver to 2-1 in the second period, one day after coming over from Montreal in a trade.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
