The goaltending battle between Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider has been a hot topic this season in hockey-crazed Vancouver.
The four-time All-Star and the Boston College alum have been jockeying for time in the Canucks’ net, with both putting up strong numbers but neither standing out enough to win the starting job outright. You’d think this competition would cause a rift between the two goalies, but the two seem to be taking it in stride, even taking time to spoof the controversy in a skit for TSN.
Granted, Luongo and Schneider aren’t the greatest actors (although head coach Alain Vigneault “[gave] them both full marks”), but even Bruins fans have to admit the video is pretty funny.
Check it out below.

The Vancouver Canucks' goaltending situation looks spectacularly awkward from the outside, as Cory Schneider took over the top job late in last year's playoffs and was presumed to be the starter this year, leading to endless trade rumours about Roberto Luongo. This year, though, both have played so well that head coach Alain Vigneault has joked about making his decisions...

When you think Vancouver and millionaires and Stanley Cup finals, who comes to mind?
Seems fitting that the Canucks’ $64-million man, Roberto Luongo, and his team will be wearing the awesome Vancouver Millionaires throwback uniforms on Saturday as the team hosts the Detroit Red Wings.

The Vancouver Canucks finally snapped out of their scoring slump, but their power-play unit hasn't come through in quite some time.
They're hoping Roberto Luongo can do a better job of keeping the visiting Detroit Red Wings from scoring Saturday night as he gets an opportunity to redeem himself from a rough performance last month.
Vancouver (13-7-6) has won two straight...
The goalie situation in Vancouver is anything but settled, what with Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider going back and forth as the number one netminder on the club. As it stands Schneider and Luongo have nearly split the goaltending duties right down the middle, appearing in 14 and 12 games respectively. Despite this ongoing competition, the two happen to be quite friendly, as evidenced...
The Vancouver Canucks, wearing Vancouver Millionaires jerseys to commemorate 100 years of professional hockey in the city, set a new franchise record by taking only 6 seconds from the opening faceoff to score as Alex Burrows beats Jimmy Howard. Watch:
I personally don’t think that this should have been called as a penalty shot, but there have been a lot more penalty shots awarded this year than in years past. With a one-goal lead late in the game, Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin was given a penalty shot and boy did he ever take advantage of it. Sedin had been 0 for 3 in shootouts for his career, but this move he pulled...
The Vancouver Canucks goalie situation has been talked about often ever since Corey Schneider replaced Roberto Luongo in the playoffs last year. After deciding to keep Luongo for the time being, he ended up replacing Schneider when Schneider didn’t play well to start the year.
The two are friends off the ice which makes things much easier for them, and this video with TSN’s...
With the Canucks struggling to win games this season, fans are looking for answers. They see an aging team that appears to be in decline since their near dream season in 2010-11.
The Canucks aren’t getting any younger. They have only four players on their roster under the age of 25 (Zack Kassian, Chris Tanev, Dale Weise and Tom Sestito), and none of them were Canucks draft picks...
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader both scored two goals, and the Detroit Red Wings surged past the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Saturday night.
Zetterberg broke out with his first goals in 11 games, dating to the Red Wings' 8-3 rout of Vancouver in Detroit on Feb. 24.
Daniel Cleary also scored for the Red Wings (14-10-5), who earned their...
While the Minnesota Wild got the best of the Vancouver Canucks last weekend, a repeat performance could be difficult at Rogers Arena.
Sitting in a tie atop the Northwest Division, Minnesota tries to avoid a 12th consecutive loss at Vancouver as these teams conclude their season series Monday night.
The Wild (15-10-2) had been outscored 6-2 during a pair of regulation losses to...
