Courtesy Bruce Bennett/Getty Images The Vancouver Canucks are on the home stretch of their 7 game eastern swing with a rematch vs the New Jersey Devils. Roberto Luongo vs Cory Schneider backstory aside, this is an important game in that a Canucks win secures a successful road trip. Travel won’t be an issue as the Canucks played in Long Island the game before. Last Game The Canucks pulled out a gritty 5-4 OT win vs the New York Islanders. It was a game that will be remembered for a few reasons; David Booth was a healthy scratch, Jannik Hansen suffered what looked to be a shoulder injury that may keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time, and John Tortorella described the game as a “cluster _____” (presumably those listening were to finish off the saying for themselves). The Opponent The New Jersey Devils are a team that is still trying to find itself. Cory Schneider has quickly supplanted Martin Brodeur as the #1 goaltender, but the Devils have struggled out of the g...

A return to his NHL roots on Long Island rekindles memories for Luongo

Long before the knock on the door of his south Florida home this past summer from Vancouver Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini Roberto Luongo had another draft-day surprise. It came courtesy of his original NHL team the New York Islanders who the Canucks meet here on Tuesday night. It was the early summer of 2000 and Luongo had just completed his rookie season with the Islanders...

NHL must do more to promote Western teams

The Vancouver Canucks were in Newark, New Jersey on Thursday night to take on the Devils. Most of the controversy behind the Schneider/Luongo reunion had passed through on New Jersey's earlier trip to BC a couple of weeks ago. Still, however, this is a game featuring a team that made a recent Stanley Cup visit, has two viable NHL superstars in the Sedin twins, an Olympian in...

Round 2 Canucks gameday links: NWSB Matchup Insight | NWSB Preview + Prediction The Vancouver Canucks will face a familiar foe in Cory Schneider again tonight as they visit the New Jersey Devils for an early season rematch.

Cory Schneider will make third straight start in goal Thursday vs. Canucks

Devils coach Pete De Boer said Cory Schneider will make his third consecutive start in goal Thursday night when the team hosts the Vancouver Canucks at Prudential Center. He said the team will not have captain Bryce Salvador who returned to Lethbridge Alberta because of a death in his family. DeBoer said no decision has been made as to whether AHL recall Eric Gelinas will play...

Brodeur: “Pretty easy decision for the coach” to start Schneider in Columbus

The decision of which goaltender Devils coach Pete DeBoer would start in Tuesday night’s game in Columbus was a pretty simple one. It wasn’t about a bigger picture or a long-term plan. All that mattered was that the Devils defeated the Rangers 4-0 Saturday night with Cory Schneider in net. Schneider posted the 22-save shutout – his first shutout as a Devil – and the team...

Martin Brodeur says Cory Schneider is the team's No. 1 goalie now

It was going to happen sooner or later. Cory Schneider was going to assume the role as the Devils’ No. 1 goalie taking the baton from Martin Brodeur and getting a run of starts. Clearly it’s happening sooner rather than later. Schneider will make his third straight start in goal Thursday night when the Devils host the Vancouver Canucks at Prudential Center and Brodeur acknowledged...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils: A Sign Of Things To Come?

Sunday afternoon it was announced that when the New Jersey Devils take on Columbus Tuesday night, Cory Schneider will start for the Devils.

The Devils aren't entering a set of back-to-backs, either, as they're off Wednesday so DeBoer is putting...

Brodeur OK with Schneider taking No.1 job

Martin Brodeur has been the starting goaltender for the New Jersey Devils for 20 years and for most of his career he never seemed close to relinquishing it. However that’s exactly the case as a recent strong spell from Cory Schneider has the 41-year-old legend re-considering his position. Brodeur praised his teammate’s consistency this season and made it clear that his only...

Canucks-Devils Preview

There will be far less fanfare surrounding Cory Schneider's second start against his former Vancouver Canucks teammates than the first just over two weeks ago, leaving him to focus solely on helping the New Jersey Devils bust out of their slump. New Jersey will be without captain Bryce Salvador, though, when it hosts Vancouver on Thursday night. The Canucks traded Schneider...

Around The Hockey World On A Monday Morning

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, - It could get messy for the New Jersey Devils as Martin Brodeur is looking his age (finally!) with an .865 save percentage while Cory Schneider is .927 and is better by almost a goal and a half a game. Right now, they are rotating, but at what point do they go to Schneider two out of every three if he’s clearly better than the winningest...

After 10 Games – Canucks 3 Stars

3 Stars Growing up, one of the best parts of watching the game, sometimes even more so than the game itself, wasn’t always Don Cherry’s suit, but rather trying to figure out which three players were going to be honored with the post-game skate after being nominated one of the “3 Stars” of the night. Starting today, we are going to take a look at the Vancouver Canucks‘ “3...

Cam Atkinson Fights to Keep Puck, Scores on Beautiful Backhand Shot From High Slot

Cam Atkinson‘s first career NHL goal came against Cory Schneider back in 2011, and on Tuesday night, his nastiest goal came against the same goaltender. The Boston College grad dazzled on the ice as the Blue Jackets took on the Devils, slipping the puck past the New Jersey netminder with a pretty slick backhander from the high slot. After fighting to keep the puck in the zone the...
