Cory Schneider has taken the reins as the Vancouver Canucks' No. 1 goaltender, and it doesn't appear he'll be relinquishing them any time soon.
He'll make his 12th straight start Wednesday night when Vancouver seeks a fourth consecutive victory visiting the Calgary Flames.
Schneider entered the 2013 lockout-shortened season as the team's starting netminder after supplanting Roberto Luongo during Vancouver's first-round playoff loss to Los Angeles.
Though Schneider struggled at times to begin this campaign, he has made 25 starts for the Canucks (22-11-6) while posting a 2.06 goals-against average that ranks among the best in the league.
Since Luongo made his last start March 18, Schneider is 9-2-0 with a 1.29 GAA and four shutouts, and needed to make only 19 saves in Monday's 2-0 win over Phoenix.
Schneider has a 1.63 GAA while winning each of his three starts versus Calgary this season, stopping 36 shots in Saturday's 5-2 victory.
