Jordan Schroeder scored in a shootout to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.
Schroeder, who hasn't scored a traditional goal in the regular season, fired a low, hard shot that squeaked through the pads of goalie Corey Crawford.
Alex Edler scored in regulation for the Canucks (4-2-2).
Patrick Kane had the lone goal for the Blackhawks, who lost their second straight in a shootout after starting the season with six victories.
Chicago controlled overtime, outshooting Vancouver 4-1. The Blackhawks were also awarded a power play with 1:11 left when Vancouver defenseman Jason Garrison was called for high-sticking. Chicago, which outshot Vancouver 28-22, was 0 for 5 on the power play.
The Canucks had a 40-second, 5-on-3 power play in the third period, but didn't register a shot on goal.
Edler opened the scoring at 15:42 of the first period. The big defenseman took a pass from Zack Kassian and fired a shot past Crawford for his ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Nucks +/-
Well, we’re all done the month of January and I thought it would be alright to go through which Canucks players have stuck out and which have maybe stunk out.
This is the first and certainly not the last, the Plus/Minus of the month.
Whodda thunk it?
Zack Kassian in seven games is leading the team in goals with five. One could attribute his...

Really? Do you want to talk about something else around the water cooler today?
The Canucks won, so you have most, if not all of your hair; and it was only a Wednesday, so you’re probably not droopy eyed and clinging to that fifth cup of coffee.
I just wanted to take a second to touch on the goalie issues the Canucks are currently having, or not currently having...

Boxscore | Recap
For all the hype, this was probably the tamest edition of the Canucks/Blackhawks rivalry. There was absolutely no rough stuff aside from Sheldon Brookbank chasing after Alex Burrows after he cheekily slipped the puck in the net on an offside call.
Both teams came into the game saying all the right things about just wanting to get the...
Here we go… time to renew hostilities
The Vancouver Canucks are back in action tonight. They close out this two game home stand against their bitter rivals from the Central division, the Chicago Blackhawks. Tonight has a little something else going for it than most Canucks and Blackhawks games do.
It will be the first time the two teams have played since Duncan Keith ended Daniel...
The Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday traded forward Peter LeBlanc to the Washington Capitals in exhange for future considerations. In addition, the Blackhawks' AHL affiliant, the Rockford IceHogs, acquired Mathieu Beaudoin from the Hershey Bears in exchange for future considerations. Beaudoin, 28, appeared in 32 games this season Hershey, scoring three goals and adding seven...
It seemed a near certainty Roberto Luongo had played his final game in a Vancouver Canucks sweater after Cory Schneider supplanted him as the team's No. 1 goaltender during last season's playoffs.
Now, he's proving to be an asset.
Luongo will make his third straight start Friday night as Vancouver hosts the rival Chicago Blackhawks, who have earned 13 of a possible...
from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,
Following Friday night’s game, Luongo sat fifth in the NHL with a 1.46 goals-against average and fourth with a .944 save percentage which, considering his Canucks career, isn’t that unusual. But unless you’ve been on a probe in deep space for the last 10 months, you may be aware the circumstances around those numbers have been...
