Schneider ready to take the reins for Devils

New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider joined NHL Live to discuss what lies ahead for the 2014-15 season, one where Schneider will be a No. 1 goalie for the first time in his career after sharing time with Roberto Luongo for the Vancouver Canucks and Martin Brodeur in New Jersey.

"It's exciting, better late than never," Schneider said. "I had a few guys in Roberto and Marty who I've been able to learn from and watch how to take care of myself and be prepared for the season. I think I'm ready to do that. It's going to be exciting for me this year.

"It's going to be a little bit of a new experience for me. I played 45 [games] last year, which is a good amount but it's still not 55 or 60, so there's still that extra little bit that you can push and mentally get through that grind. I've got a good support system here in Jersey training with coaches and my goalie coach, Chris Terreri, and teammates, so I'm going to rely on those guys for help and when I need to pull back a little bit or maybe I need to push forward."

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
