New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider stopped 29 of 30 Toronto shots before the Devils defeated the Maple Leafs 2-1 in a shootout Wednesday night in New Jersey.
Schneider kicked aside 12 power-play shots by the Leafs, many of them off the sticks of James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak from close or point-blank range. Schneider also was fortunate when a blast by Leo Komarov from the left hash hit the far post midway through the second period. Schneider continues to improve for the Devils as the season progresses. He now has a very good goals-against average of 2.37 and a save percentage of .921 in a league-high 42 starts for NHL goalies in 2014-15. His record is 17-19-4. He wouldn't be a bad addition for the season's second half if he were available in fantasy leagues. Jan 28 - 10:30 PM

Cory Schneider will play between the pipes on Wednesday against Toronto.

Schneider endured a rough October, but he's gotten better as the season's gone on. At this point he has a solid 2.41 GAA and .920 save percentage in 41 starts in 2014-15. There's a decent chance he'll end up improving on that in the final months of the season.

New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider made 34 saves as he and the Devils stunned the Sharks 5-2 in San Jose Monday night.

Schneider's performance was impressive, especially when you consider that he wasn't even scheduled to play initially. The Devils originally said he would sit out against the Sharks because of what happened to him three days earlier in Anaheim. He missed the final two periods of a 5-1 loss against the Ducks after taking a Matt Beleskey shot off the right side of his helmet at 3:31 of the first period. He finished the period but didn't return after the first intermission because he started feeling worse. Schneider had Saturday off practice, too. But he came up pretty big Monday night and stymied the Sharks on several good chances. Schneider improved his season record to 16-19-4. His goals-against average sits at 2.41. His save percentage is .920.

Cory Schneider is expected to get the start in Monday's game against San Jose, according to Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello.

Originally, Lamoriello said that Schneider would be the backup goaltender in Monday's game, but the plan changed along the way. The 28-year-old exited Friday's game against Anaheim, but he appears to have avoided serious injury.

Cory Schneider is expected to be the backup for Keith Kinkaid on Monday in San Jose, according Lou Lamoriello.

Crisis averted for Devils fans and Schneider owners everywhere. New Jersey will be home to Toronto (Wednesday), Pittsburgh (Friday) and Florida (Saturday) next week, so based on today's report from Lou Lamoriello, expect Schneider to start at least one of those games.
Jan 17 - 7:15 PM

There is some concern that Cory Schneider may have suffered a head injury on Friday.

Schneider took a shot from Matt Beleskey that may have caught him in the collarbone or head. Whatever the case, Schneider was in discomfort and although he finished the period after getting hit at the 3:13 mark, he was unable to go after that. "I thought it hit him in the shoulder maybe. Somebody said it hit him in the side of the head," backup goalie Keith Kinkaid said. "I hope he's alright." Stay tuned.

Cory Schneider exited Friday night's game in Anaheim early with an upper body injury.

The Devils haven't said anything yet, but the prevailing thought is that a shot by Matt Beleskey that caught Schneider near the collarbone may have caused the injury. Either way, the Devils primary netminder played all 20 minutes of the first period and stopped 14 of 15 shots. Backup Keith Kinkaid took his place to begin the second period, meaning Schneider is not expected to return.

Cory Schneider will get the start in Anaheim on Friday night.

While Schneider leads all goalies in games with 39 and is tied with Carey Price with 35 starts, he doesn't lead in goals against. In fact, four others have allowed more pucks by them than Schneider's 91. And his .919 save percentage and 2.42 GAA is by far the best as well. In fact, one might say they're legitimately good on their own. He's 15-19-4 this season, and 4-2-1 in nine games versus Anaheim with two shutouts and 17 goals against. Start with confidence.
Jan 16 - 7:39 PM

Cory Schneider picked up his 15th win of the year in a 5-3 win over the Kings on Wednesday.

Schneider made 23 saves on 26 shots to pick up the win but can really thank his teammates for executing on the offensive end. He now has three wins in his last four appearances. Start him with confidence as he holds a respectable 2.42 goals-against-average and .919 save percentage in a league high 39 games.
Jan 15 - 1:39 AM

Cory Schneider will get the start for New Jersey on Wednesday versus Los Angeles.

The Devils' number one goalie is looking to get back into the win column after suffering the loss to Boston despite making 40 saves. Schneider is 14-19-4 this season with a .919 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average.
Jan 14 - 10:13 PM

Cory Schneider put forth a fantastic effort on Thursday night, stopping 40 of 42 shots, but his team could not offer any offense in a 3-0 loss to Boston.

Scheider has allowed more than three goals just once in his past seven starts, but has just three victories. The veteran goaltender needs a bit more help from his team in order to be a better asset on fantasy teams. Schneider is 14-19-4 this season with a .919 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average.
Jan 8 - 10:31 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes against Boston on Thursday night.

As if you expected otherwise, we're sure. Schneider comes in sporting a .918 save percentage and 2.41 GAA through his league-leading 37 games and 34 starts. His career against Boston doesn't sparkle any more, with seven goals against in two starts.
Jan 8 - 5:29 PM

Cory Schneider enjoyed a relatively easy night on Tuesday as he stopped 20 of 21 shots in a 4-1 victory over Buffalo.

The lowly Sabres have won just once in their past 10 games so they were just what the doctor ordered for Schneider, who has now won back-to-back contests for the first time since early November. His record improves to 14-18-4 while his GAA is 2.41 and his save percentage is a respectable .918.
Jan 6 - 9:51 PM

Cory Schneider will be the Devils' goaltender on Tuesday.

Schneider hasn't been on a winning streak since Nov. 11-14, but he has an opportunity to go on one after earning a 5-2 victory on Friday. He has a 2.45 GAA and .917 save percentage in 36 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 5 - 4:33 PM

Cory Schneider made 18 saves in the Devils’ 5-2 win over the Flyers on Friday night.

On most nights, giving up two goals isn’t going to cut it for the Devils netminder. New Jersey has struggled to score all season. Schneider has wins in two of his last three games. The 28-year-old has a 2.45 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.
