Cory Schneider’s debut in goal for the Devils couldn’t have gone much better. In a 2-1 preseason victory over the Rangers at Prudential Center Schneider stopped all 22 shots he faced in the first two periods. “It’s always nice to get a little action make some saves and winning never gets old” Schneider said. “It is preseason but that was probably one of the most spirited preseason games I’ve ever seen. That was the first one. The fans were great and both teams had a lot of energy and were playing hard.” Coach Pete DeBoer was happy for Schneider who was acquired in a draft day trade with the Vancouver Canucks. “I’m just glad for him. The first game is always a tough one when you go to a new team” DeBoer said. “You obviously want to win the home fans over and he’s playing against his old coach from last year in Vancouver Alain Vigneault. It was nice for him to put up the performance he did and for us to get him a win. “I thought he was excellent. I thought both of our goalies were good in net.” Schneider said he wasn’t rusty.
