Boeser scores twice, leads Canucks past Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) Rookie Brock Boeser scored two more goals to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.

Boeser, after scoring twice against Philadelphia on Tuesday, added two more and now has 11 this season. Former Penguin defenseman Derrick Pouliot scored a power-play goal, his first with Vancouver. Loui Eriksson, playing in his 800th career game, scored his second. Brandon Sutter, another former Penguin, scored an empty-net goal for the Canucks, who won in Pittsburgh for the first time since Dec. 4, 2014. Vancouver is 3-5-3 at home, but has won eight of 11 on the road this season.

Anders Nilsson withstood a third-period Penguins' surge to stop 42 shots for the Canucks.
