Cory Schneider allowed four goals on 30 shots in his preseason debut for the New Jersey Devils in a 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders at Barclays Center on Monday.

Schneider did not play Saturday in a 5-4 win against the New York Rangers as a precaution because of soreness. He appeared in one game for Team USA at the World Cup of Hockey 2016.

Forward Andrew Ladd scored his first goal with the Islanders at 14:29 of the second period to tie the game 2-2. Rookie center Mathew Barzal had a goal and an assist.

Defenseman Johnny Boychuk had two assists, and former Devils forwards Steve Bernier (two assists) and Stephen Gionta (goal) each had a point for the Islanders.

Forwards Reid Boucher, Miles Wood and Devante Smith-Pelly each scored for the Devils.
