ST. PAUL, Minn. - Kevin Bieksa's power-play goal and an early scuffle sparked Vancouver in the first period, and goalie Cory Schneider picked up his first career victory for the Canucks in a 2-1 decision over the Minnesota Wild in a fight-filled game last night.

Vancouver's four-game losing streak ended, and Minnesota fell to 0-3 this season against its chief Northwest Division rival.

Jason Jaffray scored in the second period to give the Canucks the lead back after Mikko Koivu slammed a long rebound past Schneider just 27 seconds after the first intermission.

That was the only lapse by Schneider, Vancouver's first-round draft pick in 2004.
