The Goods: Six pack

When Cory Schneider does the stopping, there's no stopping Cory Schneider.

The Canucks goaltender, starting his sixth straight game, helped the Vancouver Canucks win their sixth consecutive game beating the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 Thursday night at Rogers Arena.

Schneider made 32 saves, including 11 in the third period, as the Canucks closed out a mini two-game homestand with two wins to keep the good times rolling for Vancouver.

This game began with what the 1-0 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets lacked - a regulation goal. Daniel Sedin to Henrik Sedin to Alex Burrows, to the back of the net, it was poetry in motion and it put the Canucks up 1-0 after 20 minutes.

Early in the third period the Avalanche tied the game and, following the pace of the second frame, the game remained a slow moving chess match; Daniel Sedin brought the fans out of their seats at 11:32 scoring his 10th goal of the year and the Canucks netted a pair of empty net goals late to seal the deal.

The Canucks travel to Edmonton to face the Oilers Saturday night.
