Schneider hasn’t fared well against Chicago, posting a 3.96 goals-against average in four appearances, which isn’t a good sign considering the Hawks’ offense is rolling of late. According to latest NHL trends, the Hawks are 4-1 in their last five games following a win and 9-3 in their last 12 versus the Western Conference. The Canucks, meanwhile, are 3-8 in their last 11 following a win and 0-4 in their last four Wednesday night games.
