NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils goaltender Corey Schneider will start his 16th straight game and coach Peter DeBoer had several lineup changes to report prior to the opening faceoff against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday at Prudential Center.
Defenseman Bryce Salvador is out after sustaining a lower-body injury in a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Monday. He will be replaced in the lineup by Seth Helgeson, who makes his NHL debut and will wear No. 25.
Schneider, who signed a seven-year contract extension worth a reported $42 million in July, has been pulled on four occasions this season, including twice in the past three games. He is 6-6-2 with a 3.00 goals-against average and .901 save percentage this season. He made 19 saves in the loss to the Bruins.
