Bruins defeat Canucks 3-1, marking Vancouver's fifth straight defeat in regulation time.


Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo blamed himself for his team's 3-1 loss in Boston tonight.

"This one is 100 percent on me," Luongo said. "I wasn't on my game. I wasn't tracking well, and I didn't feel like myself."

The veteran netminder blocked 29 of 32 shots. But goals by the Bruins' Milan Lucic, Jarome Iginla, and Daniel Paille were too much for Vancouver's anemic offence.

The Canucks' only marker came from newcomer Raphael Diaz, who was picked up in a trade with Montreal for Dale Wiese.

It was Diaz's first goal in two seasons.

Vancouver showed more spirit than in last night's 2-0 loss in Detroit, but one goal in two matches is not going to carry the team very far.

It was the Canucks' fifth straight loss, dropping their record to 27-22-9.

Vancouver's last win came in Phoenix on January 26 when they beat the Coyotes 5-4 in overtime.

The Canucks' next game is on Thursday (February 6) in Montreal.
