Devils face Stadium Series goalie decision

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Cory Schneider
Goalie - NJD
RECORD: 9-9-7
GAA: 1.84 | SVP: 0.928
NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer wouldn't mind a few snowflakes in the forecast for his team's showdown with the New York Rangers on Sunday at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC).

The game is the fourth between the Metropolitan Division rivals this season, with the Devils having won the previous three by a combined 11-5.

In addition to having visions of snowflakes falling on the infield ice at Yankee Stadium, the third-year Devils coach also has a big decision to make Saturday when his team practices at the iconic ballpark.

Who will be his starting goalie against the Rangers, Martin Brodeur or Cory Schneider?

DeBoer acknowledged after a 2-1 victory against the Washington Capitals on Friday that each has played well this season.

"It's a tough decision and that's a credit to both these players" DeBoer said. "I will make a decision first thing [Saturday]. But it just shows the type of professionals both guys are; they've handled this so well all year long."

Kings' Mitchell feels lucky to get to play outdoors

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Willie Mitchell's knee injury was so mystifying that he didn't know if he'd ever play again, so an event like the one he'll take part in Saturday night at Dodger Stadium couldn't even be called a goal, a dream, or really anything at all for the Los Angeles Kings defenseman.

"I was out 17-18 months and I had no idea, to be honest with you," Mitchell told NHL.com.

Muzzin: Fun today, all business tomorrow

Jake Muzzin - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin is a veteran of outdoor hockey, except he played on ponds in his hometown of Woodstock, Ontario. Muzzin's first NHL outdoor game will be nothing like what he's used to. The first game in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series is on Saturday between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC). Muzzin will be blogging for NHL.com through the event.

His second blog entry comes after the Kings got a chance to practice at Dodger Stadium on Friday:


LOS ANGELES -- A hockey practice on the ice at Dodger Stadium. Seriously, who would have ever thought they would be doing something like that?

Sharks' Marleau, Thornton agree on extensions

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 6:20 PM / News

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has negotiated hundreds of NHL contracts during his front-office career, but he experienced a first when he began discussing new deals for forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau.

"Both players said one of the priorities was that they'd really only come back if the other one was coming back," Wilson said Friday. "So that created a unique dynamic in the negotiations because it was two individual negotiations but it was contingent to them knowing that we're a better team with both of them instead of just one.

"All I can say is, that tells you the respect between the two players. They both said, 'Well, we'll do this, but the other guy's coming back, correct?' That was really an important part of this process."

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux has been asked a lot of things in his hockey career.

"Can I paint you in zombie form on my goalie mask?" had to be a new one.

Giroux obviously said yes, as did teammates Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek. All have been transformed into zombies for Steve Mason's new goalie mask, which he unveiled for teammates and fans Friday during practice.

The new mask follows Mason's initial helmet this season, which featured zombie versions of famous American historical figures, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross.

This time Mason went a bit more contemporary.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.

— Montreal Canadiens forward Tim Bozon on playing for the first time since his life-threaning illness
