The Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at TD Garden.

ABOUT THE CANUCKS (2-2-1): Anders Nilsson may have earned another start in goal after recording his third career shutout Tuesday in his season debut after Jacob Markstrom (1-2-1, 2.96 goals-against average .902 save percentage) played the first four games. Daniel and Henrik Sedin have combined for only a goal and three assists this season, with Daniel’s two points giving him 988 for his career. Bo Horvat, who led Vancouver with a career-high 20 goals last season, hasn’t recorded a point since scoring twice in a 3-2 season-opening victory over Edmonton.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (2-3-0): Adam McQuaid and Ryan Spooner suffered lower-body injuries in Sunday’s 3-1 loss at Vegas, with McQuaid likely out and Spooner questionable to play Thursday. Boston on Wednesday recalled forwards Kenny Agostino (two goals and three assists in 17 career NHL games with Calgary and St. Louis) and Peter Cehlarik (two assists in 11 games with the Bruins last season) from Providence of the American Hockey League. Tuukka Rask (1-3-0, 3.30 GAA, .882 SP) left Wednesday’s practice after a collision with Anders Bjork during a line-rush drill and his availability could be in question Thursday.

Oddsmakers opened the Bruins as -174-moneyline favorites versus the Canucks, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

Perhaps a road trip is what the Vancouver Canucks needed as they visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday in the second contest of a five-game trek. Vancouver picked up three out of a possible eight points in its season-opening four-game homestand before hitting the road and scoring an impressive 3-0 victory over Ottawa on Tuesday as the bonding process truly began.

“This is a team that’s rebuilding, trying to learn how to win with a lot of newer faces, younger guys, so this is huge,” Thomas Vanek told reporters Tuesday after recording his 700th career point with his second goal of the season. Boston is coming off a 1-2-0 road trip that followed a two-game split at home to start the season while missing some key pieces to its lineup. Patrice Bergeron (lower-body injury) and David Backes (diverticulitis) are getting closer to making their season debuts, and Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy would not rule out Bergeron possibly playing Thursday. “Feel like everything is getting better now, feeling stronger on the ice and more comfortable,” Bergeron told reporters. “Hopefully game action is closer rather than later.”

In their last action, Boston was a 3-1 loser on the road against the Golden Knights. Bettors on Las Vegas at +146 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Vancouver was a 3-0 winner in its last match on the road against the Senators. They won as +166 underdogs, while the total score of 3 made winners of UNDER bettors.
