Glen Murray, Hal Gill and Ivan Huml also scored for the Bruins, who went 4-1-1 on their season-opening trip.

Canucks 5, Sharks 2
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Markus Naslund scored three goals in less than seven minutes of the second period as Vancouver beat reeling San Jose.
Brendan Morrison had a goal and two assists during the Canucks' five-goal outburst in the first 7:14 of the second. Naslund started his eighth career hat trick 31 seconds into the period, and finished it with an unassisted score after stealing Mike Rathje's pass behind the net.
Trent Klatt also scored for Vancouver, which won for the first time in five games. Dan Cloutier stopped 30 shots in an easy night of work.
Teemu Selanne scored for the Sharks, who are 1-4-0-0 in a season when many expected them to contend for the Stanley Cup.
San Jose hadn't allowed five goals in a period since Oct. 8, 1996, at Colorado. Sharks captain Owen Nolan left in the first period with a strained groin and didn't return.
