Schneider hopes to be the Devils’ workhorse goalie

Sportsnet's Luke Fox conducted a Q and A with New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider:

What did you think of your own workload last season? Only two goalies had more starts than your 68. Good. Definitely a new experience. I had a lot of help. Chris Terreri, my goalie coach, he’s dealt with Marty [Brodeur] for a lot of years, so he’s used to having a goalie play 70 games. He’s constantly asking: “How do you feel? Do you need to skate? Do you need to take a day off skating?” Having him there in my corner was good to get me through it the first time around.

Did you get tired by the end? Honestly, I was more tired to start the year than to end the year. The first 20 games I played, I was getting used to playing that much. There were some games I felt tired, but the more played, the better I felt. It was a great experience. Obviously I would’ve wanted to win more games and had more success, but there’s nothing better than just jumping into it, knowing you’re going to play every night. You don’t overthink things. You just go play.

Number of ideal starts: Pick one. Eighty-two. [laughs]

Fox continues...
