Canucks Start Cory Schneider Over Roberto Luongo In Game 3 Against Kings

The Vancouver Canucks have had a tough go of it in their first two games in the Stanley Cup playoffs, turning in a pair of 4-2 losses to the Los Angeles Kings, and now they're deciding it's time for a change. The team has announced that Cory Schneider, and not Roberto Luongo, will start in goal when the Canucks play the Kings in Game 3 tonight.

Luongo is off to a rocky start against the Kings, allowing three goals in the series opener and four in Game 2.

Schneider has yet to play in the postseason, but he was statistically the better goalie this year. The 26-year-old backup had a 1.96 goals-against average and .940 save percentage this season; Luongo posted a 2.41 and a .920.

The Canucks, down 2-0, return home to face the Kings tonight at 7:30 p.m. Pacific.
