The Vancouver Canucks defeated the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Tuesday night, thanks in part to a two-point performance from rookie forward Brock Boeser.
Boeser, a native of Burnsville, Minnesota, opened the scoring in the first period with his 17th goal of the season. He added an assist on the Canucks' second goal, scored by Bo Horvat late in the second period.
Boeser has been a bright spot for the Canucks this season, leading the team in scoring with 17 goals and 28 points. His performance on Tuesday night was a big boost for a team that has struggled to find its way in the standings.
“Brock has been great for us,” said Canucks head coach Travis Green. “He's a great young player who is continuing to develop and get better every game. He's a great asset for us.”
The Canucks were also able to get a strong performance from goaltender Jacob Markstrom, who made 30 saves in the victory. He was especially impressive in the third period, when the Stars outshot the Canucks 12-3.
The win was the Canucks' second in a row and improved their record to 24-25-6. The Stars, meanwhile, fell to 24-22-10 with the loss.
Boeser now has 28 points in 47 games this season, good for second in rookie scoring. He is quickly becoming one of the Canucks' most valuable players and a key part of their future.
