Rough Start For Cory Schneider

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

You think last year might have been rough for Cory Schneider, sharing the net in Vancouver with Roberto Luongo, and dealing with questions about who starts, night after night? This year, in his new home with the New Jersey Devils, Schneider is splitting time in goal again, this time with future Hall Of Famer Martin Brodeur. Both are playing well, but only Brodeur is winning regularly. That’s because, for reasons unknown, the Devils simply cannot give Schneider any goal support. He is 1-5-3 on the season in nine games, and has surrendered just 18 goals. The problem is, New Jersey has only scored 10 times in his nine starts. Following a 2-0 loss to L.A. Friday, which included an empty netter, Devils’ coach Peter DeBoer noted Schneider “can’t do more than what he’s doing.”
