Luongo doesn't start for Canucks in Game 6 @NHLdotcom

CHICAGO (AP) - Cory Schneider started in place of Roberto Luongo for the Vancouver Canucks in Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said after Chicago's 5-0 victory in Game 5 - when Luongo was pulled for a second straight game - that Luongo would remain the starter. The Canucks lead the series 3-2.

Luongo, a finalist for the Vezina Trophy as the league's top goalies, has given up 10 goals in 40 shots over the last two games. The Canucks won the first three games but Chicago has responded with back-to-back five-goal victories.

Luongo has struggled at times in his career against the Blackhawks, but he shut out Chicago in the opener of the series with 32 saves.

Luongo was 38-15-7 with a 2.11 goals-against average in the regular season.
