BOSTON (AP) — Pavol Demitra tied the game on a tip-in with 4:42 left and scored the only goal of the shootout to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 win Saturday that sent the reeling Boston Bruins to their 10th straight loss.
The defeat was the ninth in a row at home for the Bruins. Both streaks are the second-longest in club history.
Roberto Luongo stopped all three Bruins' shootout shots, while Demitra beat rookie Tuukka Rask on Vancouver's first attempt.
Zdeno Chara and Michael Ryder scored first-period power-play goals for Boston, while Mason Raymond scored in the second period for Vancouver.
The Canucks ended a two-game losing streak on the fourth stop of the longest road swing in NHL history, a 14-game trip caused by the Olympics.
