Schneider starts, Booth returns for Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks will start Cory Schneider in goal and get another big addition to the lineup with the return of forward David Booth for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Chicago will be looking to tie the NHL record by earning at least a point in 16 consecutive games to start the season, and Schneider, who gave up four goals and lost his previous start to the Dallas Stars on Feb. 15, will be looking to end the Blackhawks' streak.

Booth will be in the lineup for the first time this season. He had been on injured reserve with a groin injury. The 28-year-old scored 16 goals and had 29 points in 56 games last season for the Canucks after being acquired in a trade with the Florida Panthers.

With the exception of Manny Malhotra, who will miss the rest of the season, the Canucks now have a fully healthy roster after Ryan Kesler returned over the weekend.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
