VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 29 (UPI) -- Cory Schneider withstood a 43-shot barrage Wednesday to record his third shutout of the season and give the Vancouver Canucks a 1-0 victory over Colorado.
The Avalanche lost their fourth in a row and suffered a major setback in a bid to make the playoffs.
Colorado is in 10th place, two points out of a playoff position, but has played two more games than any of the teams it is trying to catch in the post-season chase. The Avalanche have just four games left to play.
The Canucks, who have already wrapped up a playoff berth, moved within two points of both the New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues for the best record in the NHL. All three teams have five games remaining.
