Schneider hands Kings 2nd straight shutout loss; Canucks win 1-0 on Raymond's goal

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Cory Schneider made 20 saves en route to his sixth NHL shutout, Mason Raymond scored in the first period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Saturday for their third straight victory.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Kings, coming off a 2-0 home loss to Dallas on Thursday in which they had 40 shots, were shut out for the third time this season. It is the first time they have been blanked in consecutive games since Feb. 16-18, 2012, when they sustained a pair of 1-0 home losses.

Schneider has played the last three games for the Canucks, facing 88 shots and allowing only three goals. His other shutout this season was on Jan. 26, when he made 30 saves in a 5-0 victory at Anaheim.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
