Bergeron shines again as Bruins defeat Canucks

Doug Alden, The Associated Press

BOSTON — Patrice Bergeron scored his third goal in two days as the Boston Bruins won their fourth straight game, beating the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Sunday.

Brad Marchand scored his fifth goal in eight games this season, Connor Clifton and Pavel Zacha also scored and Tomas Nosek added an empty-netter for the Bruins. The Boston team has won 11 of its last 12 games and is 14-2-0.

Hampus Lindholm had three assists. David Pastrnak was complicit in the nets of Bergeron and Marchand, allowing them to make a one-timer shot and the first line of the Bruins delivered the goods.

JT Miller scored his second goal in as many games and Sheldon Dries also scored for the Canucks, who lost for the third straight time. Thatcher Demko stopped 27 shots for the Cancuks.
