Schneider rises in NHL.com fantasy ranking

by Staff Writer / New Jersey Devils

Cory Schneider's impressive second-half run has many observers taking notice. Fresh off of his third shutout in 10 games with Tuesday's 35-save blanking of Pittsburgh, Schneider has climbed to fourth on NHL.com's top 30 fantasy goaltenders, up from sixth last week.

Here's more from NHL.com's Evan Sporer:

There's a very legitimate case to be made that Schneider is having the best season of any goalie not named Carey Price. It might be difficult to see because of his win-loss record, but Schneider is second in the League in save percentage (.929) and has been playing incredible hockey since around December. Schneider started the first 20 games of the season for the Devils, a stretch that undoubtedly had him fatigued by the end. If you take Schneider's numbers from after that stretch he has a .936 save percentage in 41 games, according to war-on-ice.com. Among goalies who have played at least 1,800 minutes (30 games) since Nov. 22, when Schenider's streak ended, only Price has a higher save percentage. And Schneider actually has a higher adjusted save percentage (.946) than Price (.945), according to war-on-ice.com, which weighs save percentage based on the quality of chances against.
