Cory Schneider didn't put forth his best performance in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Rangers.
Schneider allowed four goals on just 25 shots in the defeat, which drops his record to 3-2-1 on the campaign. Despite the winning record, the former Canuck hasn't been especially sharp this year, as evidenced by his 3.13 GAA and his .898 save percentage. Oct 21 - 10:10 PM

Cory Schneider gave up three goals on 31 shots in New Jersey’s 4-2 loss to the Sharks on Saturday.

The final goal was scored on the empty net. After winning three straight to start the season, Schneider has now given up eight goals in his last two games, both losses for the Devils. Schneider certainly has the ability to be a number-one starter, but there’s an adjustment period with becoming the full-fledged top guy, which he’s never been before until now. He has a 2.97 goals-against average and .908 save percentage this season.

Cory Schneider was yanked in the midst of a 6-2 loss to Washington on Thursday night, allowing five goals on 26 shots in the defeat.

It was Schneider's first loss of the season after a productive 3-0 start to kick off the new campaign. The 28-year-old is now 3-1 with a .909 save percentage and 2.96 goals against average. Schneider will look to rebound on Saturday night against the Sharks.
Oct 16 - 11:49 PM

Devils netminder Cory Schneider was sharp Tuesday night as he turned away 26 of 27 shots to earn himself a 2-1 victory over the Lightning.

With Martin Brodeur no longer around to look over his shoulder, Schneider has been perfect on the campaign, posting a GAA of 2.00 and a .937 save percentage to accompany his 3-0-0 record. He may not have been a consensus top five fantasy goaltender, but there's no reason Schneider can't push himself into the discussion.

Cory Schneider is projected to play between the pipes on Tuesday.

It would be Schneider's third straight start. He has a 2.50 GAA and .926 save percentage this season.
Oct 13 - 2:51 PM

The New Jersey Devils have scored 11 goals in two games with Cory Schneider between the pipes.

This is in stark contrast to last season when the Devils managed only 10 goals in Schneider's first nine starts. "It’s great," Schneider said. "We’re playing with confidence. We’re playing with skill and speed. We’re getting some good bounces, but I think it’s because we’re doing the right things and playing the right way, and that’s the result of that. So, obviously, it’s probably not sustainable, but we’re enjoying it while we can." Schneider will likely be a top-ten fantasy goaltender this season.

Cory Schneider made 28 saves as the Devils blew out the Panthers on Saturday night 5-1.

That is more like it. After giving up four goals in the first game of the season, Schneider was his stingy self in this one. Schneider could be among the best goalies this year, and with more puck luck in New Jersey, close to 40 wins can’t be ruled out. He is 2-0-0 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .926 save percentage this season. The veteran-laden Devils could be a sneaky-good team this year.

Cory Schneider is happy to finally be the undisputed number one netminder.

Schneider should have had this distinction the last two years as he was better than Roberto Luongo in Vancouver during the 2012-13 season, and last year as well as he certainly outplayed the legend, Martin Brodeur. This season, with only Scott Clemmensen as his competition, Schneider should play 65-70 games, barring an injury. He is a must-start in fantasy pools.

Cory Schneider will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Schneider is expected to get the vast majority of the starts for the Devils this season. He didn't have the best of openers, but New Jersey still won and Schneider should be great in the long run.
Oct 10 - 2:22 PM

Cory Schneider wanted a closer affair, it seemed, as he blew two leads in short order. The Devils won the season opener despite his efforts 6-4.

The Devils were up 3-0 late in the second when the Flyers put three past Schneider in the final 4:15. The Flyers also tied the game at four just 15 seconds after the Devils took their second lead early in the third. Chalk it up to opening night jitters. Schneider's one of the best goalies in the game. He did manage to stop 35-39 shots.
Oct 10 - 12:31 AM

Expect to see the New Jersey Devils play Cory Schneider a lot this season and he could get into 70 games.

This is the Devils way although to be fair, they did have Martin Brodeur for over 20 seasons to provide the great netminding as well as plenty of games. If true, this should bump up his fantasy value and he could become a top-five fantasy netminder as wins are sure to follow.
Oct 5 - 8:57 AM

Cory Schneider won't be used in the Devils' preseason opener on Monday.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer hasn't revealed much more about his plans for the game aside from that tidbit. Schneider will be the Devils' starter this season, but there's a battle going on to serve as his understudy, so it would make sense to get some of the contenders in that fight to play early.
Sep 22 - 7:31 AM

Cory Schneider understands that he has big shoes to fill in New Jersey.

Schneider has been hungry for the opportunity to be a starting goaltender for a while, but his current position is more than that. He also has the legacy left by Martin Brodeur to wrestle with as he will, fairly or not, inevitably be compared to the future Hall of Famer. That doesn't bother Schneider though. "We all knew at some point he was not going to be here, though it sort of seems strange without him here, but, at the same time, if it's going to be anyone, I'm excited and proud that it's me," Schneider said.
Sep 18 - 10:12 AM

Cory Schneider is slated to see plenty of action this season if coach Pete DeBoer's early prediction is accurate.

The New Jersey bench boss was asked how many games Schneider may start in 2014-15 as the club's starter and he said, "I'm not a big numbers guy. I think he's got the body and the capability of playing 70 games. Is that the right number or is 56 the right number? I think that's going to depend on a lot of things – how we're playing as a group, how he's feeling. The nice thing about him is he's a big, strong goaltender. I don't have a workload number where I say that's too much for him. I think he has the ability to handle whatever we throw at him." Schneider played in a career high 45 games last campaign and he started 43 of them, but with Martin Brodeur out of the picture he is expected to be the Devils' top option.
Sep 11 - 10:50 AM

Cory Schneider has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with the New Jersey Devils.

New Jersey won't provide any further details regarding the contract, but it's reportedly a seven-year, $42 million contract. If that's true then it seems like a fair amount for Schneider. He's never had the opportunity to serve as a team's clear cut starter, but he's been a great goaltender for years and that should continue in his expanded role.
