Schneider back at practice, status for Game 1 uncertain

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider returned to practice Monday, but his status for the first game of the Stanley Cup quarter-finals against the San Jose Sharks remained uncertain.

Schneider was injured April 22 in a win over Chicago, when he played the whole game without any apparent discomfort. He had not practised with the team since and missed Vancouver's final two regular-season games, but worked out briefly with an assistant coach Sunday.

Coach Alain Vigneault reiterated that Schneider's status remains day to day.

Many observers had speculated the 27-year-old netminder was not injured. But Schneider said his undisclosed ailment prevented him from playing.

VANCOUVER — Vancouver Canucks goaltender Cory Schneider returned to practice Monday, but his status for the first game of the Stanley Cup quarter-finals against the San Jose Sharks remained uncertain.

Schneider was injured April 22 in a win over Chicago, when he played the whole game without any apparent discomfort. He had not practised with the team since and missed Vancouver's final two regular-season games, but worked out briefly with an assistant coach Sunday.

Coach Alain Vigneault reiterated that Schneider's status remains day to day.

Many observers had speculated the 27-year-old netminder was not injured. But Schneider said his undisclosed ailment prevented him from playing.

"It wasn't really a rest issue," said Schneider. "It was a day-to-day injury, and I had to take some time off."

Schneider said he knows when he was injured against the Blackhawks, but declined to elaborate. He has been making progress in his recovery and hopes to play against the Sharks at some point.

Schneider finished with a 17-9-4 record, a 2.11 goals-against average and five shutouts.

He was ticketed as Vancouver's playoff starter months ago.
