Cory Schneider made 25 saves and stopped a penalty shot, Mason Raymond scored early in the first period and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Thursday night.
The Canucks were without Daniel Sedin, the team leader with 30 goals, sidelined indefinitely because of a head injury. Sedin is back in Vancouver after taking an elbow to the head from Chicago's Duncan Keith in the first period of the Blackhawks' 2-1 overtime win over the Canucks on Wednesday night.
Vancouver capitalized on its first shot of the night at 4:46 of the opening period when Raymond was wide open to the right of Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen. Raymond netted his ninth goal of the season, converting Henrik Sedin's setup that glanced off the stick of teammate Dan Hamhuis to Raymond.
Kevin Bieksa made it 2-0 at 4:18 of the third period.
Vernon Fiddler scored for Dallas at 7:44.
