As road trips go this is a monster for the Devils who aren’t happy about short bus rides into Manhattan when there is heavy traffic at the Lincoln Tunnel. They will fly 8000 miles in a span of 13 days to play games in five cities. All but the finale in Ottawa will be stops in western Canada. There is one game however that figures to be far more intriguing than the rest. That will come Tuesday night in Vancouver when Cory Schneider returns to that city and where signs point to the likelihood of him starting in goal against the Canucks and former goalie partner Roberto Luongo. “I’m sure it will be a pretty big deal there with what went on for the last year or two years” said Schneider who shared the playing time with Luongo. “It really got blown out of proportion. I’m sure they’ll be excited to welcome me back and compare and see what’s going on. “For me it’s a great city and a great hockey town. It was a privilege to have played there but I’ve moved on. I’m enjoying my time and teammates here.” In five seasons Schneider appeared in 98 games for the Canucks and went 55-26-8. Luongo played 257 games over that period and was 151-70-29. But a controversy developed when Luongo played poorly in the sixth and seventh games of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals against the Bruins. Canucks GM Mike Gillis shopped Luongo during the lengthy offseason but did not trade either goalie. When the lockout ended last January Schneider was the starter but was pulled on opening night. Ultimately Schneider isn’t sure if he was the good guy or bad guy in the eyes of Canucks fans during the ongoing controversy. “I don’t really know how I was perceived” Schneider said. “It just seemed that whether it was me or Roberto people seemed to pick sides which I never understood because we were teammates.
