VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins go for

their third straight victory when they make a rare visit to the

Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

While the Bruins have yet to prove whether they are a contender

in the Eastern Conference this season, the club has shown that

their games will come down to the final whistle.

Seven of the nine contests Boston has played in has been decided

by one goal, with the other two games being decided by two

goals.

Dennis Wideman scored a power-play goal in overtime on Tuesday

as Boston won back-to-back games for the first time this season

with a 1-0 triumph at the Edmonton Oilers on Monday. Tim Thomas

made 27 saves for his eighth career shutout.

The Canucks will be playing in just their third home game of the

season and are coming off a 6-3 victory over the Oilers on

Saturday.

The victory comes off the heels of a six-game road trip for

Vancouver, which has not hosted Boston since it won, 5-2, on

December 4, 2005.

Center Ryan Kesler leads the club with nine points and the

24-year-old has registered a point in five straight games.
