Devils goaltender Cory Schneider hit the showers early on Tuesday night after surrendering five goals on 23 shots in an 8-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

The damage against Schneider was done over the game's first 40 minutes, but his replacement, Scott Clemmensen, didn't fare much better as he allowed three goals on 10 shots in one period of work. Schneider's record fell to 4-3-2 as a result of this decision while his peripherals took a hit as well. His GAA now rests at 3.15 while his save percentage is a measly .901

Cory Schneider blocked 33 shots in the Devils’ 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa on Saturday night.

There was some thought that the Devils would turn to Scott Clemmensen in the second of a back-to-back, but coach Peter DeBoer stuck with his number-one. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Schneider lead the league in starts. This win snapped a four-game losing streak. Schneider has a 2.78 goals-against average and .912 save percentage this year.

The New Jersey Devils will go with Cory Schneider instead of Scott Clemmensen against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Schneider gets back-to-back starts, after all. The gap between the two goalies' skills is large enough that it's understandable why New Jersey is going in this direction. He played both of five back-to-back sets for the Devils in 2013-14.

Cory Schneider stood tall Friday night against Dallas, turning away 35-37 shots through overtime before losing 3-2 in the shootout.

I'd say, "again", but this is just the first shootout loss of the season. Schneider was a big reason why the Devils even got one point against Dallas, turning away several solid scoring chances throughout the game. However, Patrick Eaves' goal to make it 2-1 Dallas was very soft. Schneider needs to seal the short side on that one, just as he had to be better in the shootouts. Jamie Benn's winner was equally soft, albeit to the far side. Continue to deploy Schneider with confidence.

Cory Schneider will play between the pipes on Friday.

The bigger question is if Schneider will also get the nod on Saturday. Devils coach Pete DeBoer said it's "possible," but he hasn't made a commitment yet. He might end up using Schneider's performance on Friday as the determining factor.

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.
Oct 15 - 3:40 AM

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.
Oct 12 - 8:20 AM

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.
Oct 11 - 10:53 PM

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.
Oct 11 - 7:14 AM

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.
