The basic meaning of phrase means is to end a losing streak'.
In baseball (according to Wikepedia), to get off the schneid is:
To break a scoreless, hitless, or winless streak (i.e., a schneid). According to the Dickson Baseball Dictionary, the term "schneid" comes to baseball via gin rummy, and in turn comes from German / Yiddish "schneider," one who cuts cloth, i.e., a tailor.
So with that 8-2 win over Colorado, I hope that Vancouver is now off the schneid.
