British Columbia (AP) Anders Nilsson finally had his hard work rewarded with a
victory.Loui Eriksson scored his second goal of the night late in the third
period and Nilsson stopped 44 shots to pick up his first win in 2 1/2 months as
the Vancouver Canucks beat the Boston Bruins 6-1 Saturday night.Nilsson was
0-7-0 in his last 11 appearances, including nine starts, since beating Nashville
on Nov. 30.Article continues below ...”I feel like I’m getting back to my game a
little bit,” the 27-year-old Swede said. ”Even though the results haven’t been
going my way, or the team’s way, I’m feeling like my game has slowly been
getting back to the way it should be and the way when I play my best.”It feels
great to be able to contribute to two points.”Nilsson started the season strong
with four wins in his first five starts, including shutouts over Ottawa and
Minnesota. Since December, however, he has struggled. His win against the Bruins
improved his record to 7-10-1.Jacob Markstrom was scheduled to start against the
Bruins after Nilsson played in a 4-1 loss to San Jose on Thursday night. Nilsson
learned after the morning skate that Markstrom was sick and he’d be starting
instead.”It was plenty of time to get prepared,” he said. ”I still had the whole
day. I just prepared the way I normally do.”Daniel Sedin, Sven Baertschi, Nic
Dowd and Bo Horvat also scored for Vancouver, which scored four goals in the
first to take control. It gave the Canucks just their second win in eight
games.Vancouver was outshot 45-23 but got some timely saves from Nilsson.Tim
Schaller scored in the third period for the Bruins, who lost in regulation for
just the third time in 27 games. Tuukka Rask started and gave up four goals on
eight shots in the first period. Anton Khudobin came on to start the second and
finished with 13 saves.”I look at the goals and they got there,” Bruins coach
Bruce Cassidy said. ”They wanted to get there, and we didn’t prevent them from
getting there.”We got sloppy at times and we paid the price.”Nilsson made a
couple of big saves early http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-anthony-duclair-jersey ,
including getting a pad on Danton Heinen’s shot off a rebound during a
first-period Boston power play. In the third, he robbed Schaller and Sean Kuraly
on back-to-back plays.Nilsson also got a little lucky as the Bruins hit three
posts in the first 20 minutes.”We played a pretty good game, but we have to be
honest, we got some bounces,” Nilsson said. ”It was nice to see us get an early
lead and maybe control the game.The Canucks were outshot 18-9 in the first
period but led 4-0.Eriksson opened the scoring two minutes into the game. Rask
gave up a big rebound off Alex Edler’s shot, and Sedin took a swipe at the puck
before it rolled to Eriksson, who whacked it into the net.The Canucks went ahead
2-0 at 10:54 on a pretty play from Thomas Vanek. He skated down the middle the
ice then feathered a pass through the legs of Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo to
Sedin, who was alone at the side of the net.Horvat made it 3-0 just 56 seconds
later as he took a pass from Troy Stecher, skated around defenseman Charlie
McAvoy, and put a shot over Rask’s glove. Nilsson earned an assist on the
goal.The Canucks made it 4-0 on a strange play. Rask stopped a shot from
Baertschi and Boston’s Noel Acciari tried to clear the rebound, but the puck hit
Kuraly’s stick and went into the net.”We hung our goalies out to dry,” the
Bruins’ David Backes said. ”Then you are climbing uphill the rest of the
games.”Dowd scored the only goal of the second period to make it 5-0. Jake
Virtanen cut across the front of the net and took a shot that Khudobin stopped
but Dowd put in the rebound for his second at 2:44.NOTES: Canucks D Ben Hutton

Tuesday night. NEW YORK (AP) — The Nashville Predators liked the way a lot of
things went in their season opener, especially since they came away with a
win.P.K. Subban scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the
Predators held on to beat New York 3-2 Thursday night and spoil the
regular-season debut of new Rangers coach David Quinn.“I thought we played a
pretty good game http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-patrick-roy-jersey ,”
Subban said. “For our team, we’re at our best when we’re disciplined. At the
end, I think we would’ve liked to shut it down a little sooner and quicker and a
little easier, but we got it done.”Subban fired a one-timer from beyond the
inside edge of the right circle in front of the blue line at 3:28 of the final
period to put Nashville ahead.Filip Forsberg and Colton Sissons also scored and
Pekka Rinne stopped 34 shots for the Predators, the reigning Presidents’ Trophy
winners with 117 points last season.“Every time you start the season, you always
feel butterflies and you are a little nervous before the game,” Rinne said. “It
was a good game for us. I thought we created a lot, starting in the first
period. … It was a good first game.”Sissons’ long empty-netter with 1:24 left
pushed Nashville’s lead to 3-1, before Pavel Buchnevich pulled the Rangers back
within one with 35 seconds remaining.“We did some good things,” Predators coach
Peter Laviolette said. “There are things that we could be better at. … We were
competitive and turned the puck over a little bit too much.”Jesper Fast scored
and Henrik Lundqvist had 30 saves for the rebuilding Rangers.New York traded
several stars at the trade deadline last winter in a youth movement and then
missed the playoffs last spring for the first time in eight years. Quinn was
hired from Boston University to replace the fired Alain Vigneault.“I didn’t
think we really played to the level that we’re looking for,” Quinn said.
“Obviously, we are up against a team that’s one of the favorites to win the
Stanley Cup, so it was certainly a great test. I just thought we were hesitant.
I didn’t think we hounded the puck like we did in the preseason.”After a
scoreless first period, each team broke through in a fast-paced second in which
the Rangers outshot the Predators 17-15. Both goalies made big stops to limit
the other team to just one goal.Nashville took a 1-0 lead on Forsberg’s wrist
shot from the right slot into the top left corner at 3:54.Fast tied it at 7:37
as he deflected Filip Chytil’s centering pass from behind the goal line on the
left side.Both teams had chances in the opening period.Lundqvist denied Mattias
Ekholm in close about 90 seconds in, stopped Ryan Johansen on a 2-on-1 break
with 8:14 left, and then gloved Craig Smith’s hard wrist shot on a Nashville
power play with 2 1/2 minutes to go.Rinne Womens
