Cory Schneider Keeps Playing

from Rich Chere of NJ Advance Media,

As Schneider gears up for his ninth consecutive start Tuesday night against the Penguins, it is clear that he is getting the work load he craved before agreeing to sign a 7-year, $42 million contract extension with the Devils last summer.

It appears likely that he will play at least 70 games if he stays healthy, but is he prepared?

“I’m very prepared,” Schneider told NJ Advance Media. “You try to take it game by game, or in smaller segments. If you think about it as an 82-game season it gets pretty overwhelming and you sort of lose focus on what’s coming up next. For me it’s more about the next game than trying to figure out what I’m going to feel like 30, 40 50 games in.

“For now I feel good. These last few games I’ve actually felt more like myself in a good rhythm and seeing the puck well. So I have to continue that. Like a lot of guys say, the more you play the better you feel. I’m hoping I can keep it up.”
