Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault
announced after the morning skate on Wednesday that Cory Schneider
would be the Game 4 goalie for the Canucks. He also said that Daniel Sedin
, who is trying to come back from a concussion, will be a game-time decision.
Sedin took part in the morning skate and "looked good," according to Vigneault.
Vancouver announced Monday that Sedin, out for a month, was fit to re-join practicing with the team. Sedin practiced Wednesday and did not commit to playing in Game 4.
"We'll see," he said Tuesday. "We'll take it day-by-day. Today felt good and we'll see how it is tomorrow morning."
There is enormous pressure for Sedin to return. Vancouver trails 3-0 in this best-of-seven series and is on the verge of being eliminated in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after claiming the Presidents' Trophy.
Schneider, the young understudy to No. 1 Roberto Luongo
will be in the net again. SchneIder played in Game 3 and allowed the only goal in a 1-0 loss that has put the Canucks on the brink of elimination.
