The goalies were the story in the second period of Game 5, as both the Los Angeles Kings and the Vancouver Canucks were unable to convert on several excellent scoring opportunities in front of the net.
Cory Schneider was just as good for Vancouver, saving 10 shots of his own as the Canucks clung to a 1-0 lead. With their season on the line in the last two games, he's been excellent, allowing only one goal in the last five periods.
After giving up a goal in the first period, the Kings penalty kill unit recovered in the second, surviving a 2:00 minute checking penalty from Rob Scuderi and a 2:00 minute tripping penalty from Dwight King.
