Schneider Gets Some Ice Time

After Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo gave up 12 goals in less than two full games, the team put in Marblehead native Cory Schneider.

After the Boston Bruins exploded for 12 goals in less than two games on Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo, head coach Alain Vigneault opted to put in Marblehead native Cory Schneider, who looked solid between the pipes for the 15 minutes he was on the ice.

Schneider, who played for Marblehead High School in his freshman year and later started in the net at Boston College, recorded 9 saves over 15:45 and successfully stopped the bleeding for a passionless Canucks team that looked like they were more ready to head home for Game 5 than score on Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas.

Although Schneider's solid performance Wednesday night isn't expected to stir up a goalie controversy in Vancouver, it will likely mean that Vigneault will be quicker to pull the trigger when it comes to pulling the struggling Luongo in Game 5.

How do you think Schneider played in Game 4? Were you rooting for him to succeed or were you too caught up in the two-game turnaround of the Boston Bruins to care much about Schneider's success? Let us know in the comments section.

Cory Schneider is one more Marblehead wonder. His record this year before yesterday was 16-4-2, and yesterday he held off a merciless attack by the Bruins in the third period. He is a great asset to the Canucks and way more than in tending the goal - hope he'll start in game 5 as that will make it more of a contest. And a tribute to all of his local coaches in baseball and hockey. Go Cory Go!
