Cory Schneider showed why the New Jersey Devils were so eager to get him, stopping all 22 shots he faced as New Jersey held off the New York Rangers for a 2-1 victory.

"It's always nice to get a little action, make some saves and winning never gets old," said Schneider, who was acquired from the Vancouver Canucks on June 30. "It's 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."

He made his two best stops came against Brad Richards, robbing him at the left post during a power play 58 seconds into the second period and again with a glove save at 7:28 after a turnover.

"The first game is always a tough one when you go to a new team," Devils coach 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."

Mattias Tedenby scored in the first period for New Jersey against Henrik Lundqvist and Eric Gelinas added a goal 31 seconds into the third period against Cam Talbot. Dominic Moore's backhander with 15:01 left in regulation beat rookie Keith Kincaid for the Rangers' only goal.

"Obviously it's nice to score, but honestly I'm not too focused on that," said Moore, who signed with the Rangers after sitting out last season. "I'm more focused on doing other things well."
