Brodeur says Schneider 'is in the net now to stay'

Wednesday, 10.23.2013 / 2:53 PM / News

NHL.com Staff

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur told reporters Wednesday that Cory Schneider will likely assume the role as the team's No. 1 for the foreseeable future.

After practice Wednesday, Devils coach Peter DeBoer announced that Schneider, 27, would make his third straight start for the Devils on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks at Prudential Center.

Brodeur told Rich Chere of The (Newark) Star-Ledger that Schneider "is in the net now to stay."

"I don't see that's going to change any time soon," Brodeur told Chere. "I'll be ready if it does. We have to try and win some games somehow. This is what [DeBoer] feels is the best opportunity to be successful, having him in the net. That's fine. If we win, everybody is happy. Even though I don't play, it's more enjoyable to be around."

Though many around the organization figured this decision would come at some point, it is a bit surprising that it is happening so soon. The Devils have struggled with a 1-5-3 mark through the opening nine games.

Panthers place Thomas on IR

Wednesday, 10.23.2013 / 1:29 PM / News

The Florida Panthers on Wednesday placed goaltender Tim Thomas on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury.

Thomas was hurt in the third period of the Panthers' game Tuesday against the Chicago Blackhawks. With 2:59 remaining in regulation of a 2-2 game, Thomas went down to make a save and stayed on the ice in obvious discomfort. After the next whistle he skated to the Florida bench and then left the ice. He was replaced by Jacob Markstrom in what ended as a 3-2 Blackhawks shootout victory.

It was Thomas' third straight start after missing four games with a groin injury sustained during a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Oct. 8.

Schneider to get third straight start for Devils

Wednesday, 10.23.2013 / 1:16 PM / News

New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider will make his third straight start Thursday when he faces his former team, the Vancouver Canucks, at Prudential Center.

Schneider, who is 1-3-1 with a 2.21 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in five starts this season for the Devils, made 29 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Canucks on Oct. 8 in Vancouver. The 27-year-old was acquired by the Devils in a trade with the Canucks on June 30 at the NHL Draft.

After shutting out the New York Rangers on Saturday, Schneider allowed three goals on 23 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

Rangers' Lundqvist to sit out Thursday vs. Flyers

Wednesday, 10.23.2013 / 12:46 PM / News

NHL.com

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist will not be in uniform for the team's game Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday.

Cam Talbot will make his NHL debut as the Rangers' starting goalie and Jason Missiaen will serve as Talbot's backup. Talbot and Missiaen started the season in the American Hockey League but have split time as Lundqvist's backups since the team waived Martin Biron last week.

Neither has any previous NHL experience, meaning that the Rangers will be the first team to dress two goaltenders with no NHL experience since Feb. 8, 2011. That night, the New York Islanders started Mikko Koskinen against the Toronto Maple Leafs, with Joel Martin serving as his backup.

Lundqvist will travel with the team but will not dress for the game. He has missed the past three practices with what the team has referred to as a "minor issue." It's unclear if Lundqvist will be able to play or even dress for the Rangers' game Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

On the 'D'-fence: Garrison thriving in Vancouver

Wednesday, 10.23.2013 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com Correspondent Brian Metzer will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy defensemen in our weekly segment: "On the 'D'-fence." From updated defensemen rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Metzer will be your fantasy d-man insider all season long.


Vancouver Canucks defenseman Jason Garrison was never a huge scorer, picking up just 26 points (seven goals) over his first 113 NHL games. That changed during the 2011-12 season with the Panthers when he put up 33 points in 77 games, including 16 goals, which was second to only Erik Karlsson and Shea Weber.

Garrison hit the free agent market following that breakout season and signed a monster deal with the Canucks that paid him $26.7 million dollars over six years. That kind of contract carries a certain amount of pressure.

The White Rock, British Columbia native saw his goals per game drop from .21 during that final season in Florida to .17 in his first season in Vancouver. He saw his points per game drop from .43 to .34. That kind of drop off in production had many fans and hockey pundits around North America scrutinizing the deal and calling it a bad one for the Canucks.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.

— Montreal forward Max Pacioretty after scoring the OT winner in Game 4 -- his first career playoff goal -- to eliminate the Lightning and send the Canadiens into the second round
