Schneider, in his 14th career start, was several minutes away from his first shutout for the streaking Canucks, who have won five straight games and extended their lead atop the Northwest Division to three points over Colorado.

Ryan Kesler, Henrik Sedin and Raffi Torres scored in the victory.

David Van der Gulik scored his first NHL goal in the losing effort.
