The Vancouver Canucks goaltending soap opera has another potential chapter. Less than a week before the playoffs are set to begin, the club announced today that starter Cory Schneider is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury and that goalie Joe Cannata has been recalled from AHL Chicago.

Not surprisingly, no injury specifics were shared.

On Monday, Schneider stopped 24 of 25 Chicago shots in a 3-1 victory over the Blackhawks that lent hockey fans in Vancouver renewed optimism about the team’s chances in the postseason.

Roberto Luongo will presumably get the nod Thursday when the Canucks host Anaheim. Vancouver closes its regular season Saturday in Edmonton. Both games are meaningless so far as the standings are concerned.

Schneider has been brilliant in March and April as Luongo has been relegated to the bench for the majority of games.

    Schneider is out for the season and Luongo leads the team to a cup. Boy I’d love that ending.

    This has been a crazy year for the goaltending situation there. Can’t WAIT for the offseason for this one to get worked out.

        Now they actually need to do something though. No way they keep them both with their cap issues.
