Boeser and Pettersson each scored 2 as the Canucks beat the Kings 4-1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Brock Boeser scored twice to end an 11-game hitting streak and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-1 on Friday night.

Elias Pettersson also scored twice, and Andrei Kuzmenko and Quinn Hughes each had two assists to help Vancouver win its second straight. Thatcher Demko stopped 37 shots to earn her second win of the season.

Blake Lizotte scored for the Kings and Jonathan Quick finished with 21 saves.

After a scoreless first period, the Kings stormed into the second and outscored the Canucks 7-0 in the first 5 minutes.

However, the Canucks made their first chance count. Pettersson and his linemates broke out on a wild run and the Swedish center sent a wrist shot past Quick from the early hash marks at 5:40 to open the scoring on Vancouver’s first shot of the period.

Sean Walker’s cross-court penalty gave the Canucks a man advantage midway through the period. Just 20 seconds into the power play, Boeser tipped Miller’s clock and put Vancouver up 2-0 with his long-awaited first goal of the season at 10:09. The exalted right wing celebrated with an emphatic double fist.
