Cory Schneider Gets the Call vs. Bruins

Standard Spin: The Canucks have been riding Luongo's hot hand as of late, but they've decided to go with Cory Schneider for their key rematch of last year's Cup Final with the Bruins on Saturday morning.  It's a bit of a surprise that they'll turn to Schneider, as it seemed like a good time to give the tempermental Luongo a chance to exorcise the demons of last year.  But maybe the Canucks know Luongo's psyche is more sensitive than a Michael Bolton song and they'd rather not take the chance of shattering his confidence while he's playing well.  Or, maybe they just feel like giving Luongo a break.  Regardless, it's Schneider on Saturday; adjust accordingly.  (Jan.6)
