Avalanche Vs. Canucks Recap: Vancouver Earns 3-0 Road Win In Denver

The Colorado Avalanche generated plenty of scoring chances in the third period on Wednesday at the Pepsi Center, but Vancouver Canucks goalie Corey Schneider wasn't about to let any shots past him. Schneider's stellar play keyed a 3-0 win for the Canucks, who improve to 10-9-1 on the season.

The lone goal of the third period was a Vancouver empty netter from Ryan Kesler. It was Kesler's third score of the season.

The third period got a bit chippy. The Canucks earned three two-minutes penalties, and Colorado's Ryan Wilson also drew one for roughing.

The AP added this:

The victory was Vancouver's 10th in the past 12 meetings with Colorado, which fell to 1-2 in an eight-game run at the Pepsi Center that stands out as the longest continuous homestand in franchise history.

Vancouver out-shot the Avs 29-29 in the game.

Avalanche Vs. Canucks Score Update: Vancouver Extends Lead To Two

Alex Burrows buried a shot past Semyon Varlamov for his sixth goal of the year to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-0 lead over the Colorado Avalanche after the second period at the Pepsi Center. Dan Harnhuis set up the goal. It was Harnhuis' ninth assist of the season.

Vancouver continues to generate more quality scoring opportunities than the Avalanche. Colorado is currently being out-shot 22-14. The Avs' faceoff dominance has continued, as they've won 17 draws compared to the Canucks' 12.

Each team was tagged with a two-minute penalty in the period. Daniel Sedin was called for hooking on Milan Hejduk for the Canucks. Colorado got a too many men on the nice penalty.

The star of the game so far might be Canucks goalie Cory Schneider. Schneider has out-played former star Roberto Luongo for much of this season.

The Avalanche's Shane O'Brien logged the lone penalty of the first period when he was called given two minutes for interference against star Canucks wing Daniel Sedin.
