Cory Schneider, the Vancouver Canucks surprise starting goalie in Game 6 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks, left Sunday's game early in the third period, but Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said that he was only suffering from cramps and would be available for Game 7.

Roberto Luongo, who started the first five games of the series for the Canucks, replaced Schneider and played the remainder of the third period and overtime. Blackhawks forward Ben Smith scored the winner 15 minutes into the extra frame, forcing a Game 7.

Vigneault did not say who would start Game 7 for Vancouver.

Schneider was injured during a Michael Frolik penalty shot. He lied on the ice for several moments before being helped to the bench and appeared to be in considerable pain.

Game 7 is Tuesday night in Vancouver at 10pm et/7pm pt.
