Cory Schneider admitted that his friendly rivalry with Roberto Luongo has pushed him to be a better goaltender.
"There's nothing like somebody pushing you, forcing you to be as good as they are, upping your compete level," Schneider said. "This is what we've been doing for each other the past two years. You want to be as good as the guy next to you. You don't want to be the guy who lays an egg and lets the team down." A trade including Luongo doesn't appear imminent so the dynamic duo in net for the Canucks is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
