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.
