Cory Schneider isn't interested in any goaltending controversy. In fact, the Vancouver Canucks netminder told The Province that the team should start Roberto Luongo in the playoffs. "He’s the guy who got us to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals last year, not me,” Schneider said of Luongo. “He’s clearly earned the right to (start the playoffs), both through his performance and his history and experience. "I don’t see why they wouldn’t start him. I’ve seen (Luongo) up close for two seasons now, and I have no doubt that when the playoffs start, he’ll be ready to go and he’ll be ready to raise his game.” Schneider, 26, has posted a better goals-against average (1.93 to 2.46) and save percentage (.938 to .919), but Luongo, 33, obviously has more wins (30 to 20) given that he has started 53 games this season.
