Cory Schneider admitted that his injured hip had been bothering him for a while.
Schneider finally got surgery to repair the injury in May. "It was something that had kind of cropped maybe a year and a half ago, a season and a half ago," Schneider said on the podcast. "It's just something that nags and it there, but you don't ever feel like it's bad enough that you need to sit out for six months, because there's no real good time to do it, unfortunately." The 32-year-old had a 17-16-6 record with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage last season. There's a chance he could be ready for the start of the season. Aug 15 - 1:17 PM

Cory Schneider should be considered the Devils' number one goaltender heading into the season.

Schneider, who had hip surgery during the off-season, struggled badly at times during the regular season, but he rebounded nicely in the playoffs. The 32-year-old posted a 1.78 goals-against-average and a .950 save percentage in the postseason. Keith Kinkaid is still a threat to him, though. Schneider will need to play well at the beginning of the year, if he is 100 percent healthy, to see the majority of the starts.

Cory Schneider is on the mend from hip surgery.

"[Devils athletic trainer Kevin Morley] saw Cory [last Tuesday] and said he's feeling good. I won't know (if Schneider will be ready for the start of training camp) until we get closer and as we go through the summertime to see how he's doing," said New Jersey GM Ray Shero. "I'm happy he had it done; (Nashville Predators) goalie Pekka Rinne had the same surgery done [in 2013] and he's up for the Vezina Trophy this year. He could return sooner or at the tail end of the (five-month) window. It's training camp and not the middle of the season so we're not going to rush it; we want to make sure it heals properly." Schneider had successful surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip in early May.
Jun 3 - 4:46 PM

Cory Schneider underwent successful surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left hip last Tuesday.

Schneider is projected to require five months of recovery time. The Devils intend to update his status over the summer when more information is available. Schneider, who dealt with the problem on and off throughout the season, could miss most of training camp or the start of the 2018-19 campaign, but he is expected to make a full recovery.
May 8 - 10:39 AM

Cory Schneider is expected to be motivated to reclaim the number one goalie job on the Devils next year.

Schneider played well in the playoffs after he struggled down the stretch, while dealing with injuries. "Hopefully it's a springboard for him that he pushed through, and I think he learned a lot about himself and a lot about what it takes to stay in the net every night, and how competitive this league can be to have a job," said coach John Hynes. "I'm pretty sure Cory Schneider's going back home this summer as a very motivated player and looking for something to prove next year." Keith Kinkaid was superb when he received the opportunity to play regularly, so Schneider is projected to face competition for playing time.
May 1 - 9:54 AM

Cory Schneider was great in the postseason.

Schneider was in net for the Devils only win in the series, while posting a .950 save percentage as well as a 1.78 GAA. This is in stark contrast to his play the second half of the season when he went 0-10-2 since December 27, which was his last regular-season win. His performance in the playoffs should give him plenty of confidence heading into 2018-19.
Apr 22 - 7:52 AM

Cory Schneider stopped 35 of 37 shots in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday afternoon in Game 5.

Schneider was excellent in the contest and in the series, but he could not hold back Tampa Bay and now the Devils' season is over. Keith Kinkaid started the first two games of the series for New Jersey before Schneider entered the fold in relief in Game 2 and reclaimed the crease afterward.
Apr 21 - 5:58 PM

Cory Schneider will start Game 5 against Washington.

That shouldn't come as a surprise, as Schneider has been superb in his previous two starts in the playoffs. He has posted a 1-1 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .951 save percentage against Tampa Bay. The Devils need a win to stay alive in the postseason.
Apr 21 - 1:06 PM

Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 36 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 Game 4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It's a tough loss for Schneider who has now put in back-to-back great performances for the Devils. The series will now shift over back to Tampa with the Devils down 3-1 in the series. New Jersey will need another huge performance from their goaltender on Saturday if they have any chance at getting back into the series.
Apr 18 - 10:27 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes for Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.

Schneider was solid during Monday's 5-2 win in Game 3 (he stopped 34 of 36 shots). For the Devils to have a chance to even up the series tonight, they'll need their goalie to be rock-solid. He has a 1-0 record with a 1.42 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 18 - 6:26 PM

Cory Schneider turned aside 34 of 36 shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Believe it or not, this was Schneider's first victory since Dec. 27. He suffered through a significant groin injury and a long losing streak during the second half of the year. Schneider turned aside all 25 shots he faced at even-strength, but he allowed the Lightning to score twice on the power play. Even though they found themselves down 2-1 in the third period, the Devils managed to come back to make this series interesting. Schneider now has a 1-0 record with a 1.42 goals-against-average and a .957 save percentage this postseason. Keith Kinkaid started the first two games of the playoffs, but Schneider will be the go-to guy going forward. The Devils will look to even up the series at two at home on Wednesday night.
Apr 16 - 11:37 PM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes for the Devils on Monday night in Game 3 versus Tampa Bay.

Keith Kinkaid struggled in the first two games of the series, so Schneider will get his first start since Apr. 7. He made a relief appearance on Saturday in Game 2 and stopped all 10 shots he faced.
Apr 16 - 11:14 AM

Coach John Hynes has decided who will start Monday night against Tampa Bay in Game 3, but he hasn't told his goaltenders yet.

Cory Schneider seems like a good bet to get the nod after he played well in relief on Saturday afternoon. He stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief after Keith Kinkaid was pulled. Kinkaid has been burned for nine goals on 46 shots in two appearances this postseason. Hynes will confirm his starting goalie Monday.
Apr 15 - 2:14 PM

Cory Schneider replaced Keith Kinkaid midway through the second period during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 2.

Kinkaid was pulled after allowing five goals on 15 shots and Schneider came in and made his presence known right away by picking up an assist on Sami Vatanen's goal just before the end of the second period. Heading back to Jersey in a 2-0 hole, we'd fully expect to see Schneider as the starter for Game 3 on Monday. The 32-year-old netminder stopped all 10 shots he faced in almost a period and a half of play.
Apr 14 - 6:16 PM

Cory Schneider allowed five goals on 26 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The only thing Schneider could say after this performance is that he did not allow Alex Ovechkin to get to 50 goals on the year. The 32-year-old netminder struggled, but that could be understandable considering he hadn't played in a game since March 20th. His record will fall to 17-16-6 with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
