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...

Devils’ Patrik Elias will miss 2nd straight with illness ‘more significant than just a flu’

The New Jersey Devils are showing some real concern over the health of Patrik Elias. Elias, the Devils veteran winger who sat out Saturday’s 4-0 victory over the rival New York Rangers, is still not feeling well and did not travel with the team for tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Devils coach Peter DeBoer, who told NorthJersey.com about the illness, “I...

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...

Can Columbus Blue Jackets get season back on track?

With eight of their next nine games being played at Nationwide Arena, will the Columbus Blue Jackets (3-5-0) be able to pick up some of the steam they had at the end of last season? It seems hopeful. While the Blue Jackets have only won one out of their three homes games this season, this upcoming home stand should give them an opportunity to get back on their feet and continue a...

With no end in sight for the sinking Devils (1-5-3), the front office has to be better than it has been. It’s not just on the players this time. The Devils have missed the postseason...

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.

Glen Miller: Jackets Looking For Second Straight Win Tonight Against Devils

Curtis McElhinney was solid in goal Sunday for Columbus as the Blue Jackets found a way to beat Vancouver. McElhinney, the journeyman goaltender signed to a one-way contract this summer to be the team's backup, stopped 37 pucks and limited the high-powered Canucks to one goal. I thought not bringing in competition for McElhinney this summer was a mistake. McElhinney had done...

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.
