Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Cory Schneider made 30 saves, including stopping
all 10 shots he faced in the final period, as Vancouver moved to the top of
the NHL standings with a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.
Aaron Rome and Mason Raymond scored for the Canucks, who have won two in a row
and six of their last seven games. They were coming off a 4-3 shootout win
over the Red Wings on Thursday, as they ended Detroit's NHL-record home
winning streak at 23 games. Friday's win moved the Canucks a point ahead of
Detroit in the West.
David Clarkson had the lone goal for the Devils, who had won their previous
four contests. Martin Brodeur made 14 stops, but New Jersey suffered just its
second regulation defeat since the All-Star break.
The Devils also made news off the ice. During the game, they acquired
defenseman Marek Zidlicky from Minnesota in exchange for forwards Nick
Palmieri and Stephane Veilleux, defenseman Kurtis Foster, a second-round pick
in 2012 and a conditional third-round pick in 2013.
