BOSTON - Zack Kassian broke a 1-1 tie with a goal early in the third period and Eddie Lack preserved the lead with 13 of his 40 saves in the final period for the Vancouver Canucks in a 2-1 win over the struggling Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin both picked up assists on the tiebreaking goal 6:47 into the third as the Canucks beat the struggling Bruins for the second time this month.

Ryan Stanton had Vancouver's other goal, beating Tuukka Rask on a slap shot 3:28 into the game to tie it at 1-1 and end a very brief lead for the Bruins.

Daniel Paille scored 1:05 into the game for Boston's only goal despite getting 41 shots. The Bruins are 1-6-2 in their past nine, including a 5-2 loss at Vancouver on Feb. 13.
