Cory Schneider Can’t Get Frustrated With New Jersey Devils’ Scoring Woes

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Cory Schneider has to make sure he doesn’t get frustrated with the NHL season still being so young. But it would be easy for the New Jersey Devil netminder to want to scream at the top of his lungs for the lack of support he’s getting whenever he’s in the net.

Schneider and the Devils lost to the Detroit Red Wings on Friday 3-1. Schneider entered the game with a 1.89 goals against average, which ranked fourth best in the league. In his previous four games, he allowed a combined six goals and won three of those, while the other one went into overtime. But even when a goalie allows three goals, he’s giving his team a good chance to pull out the win. He obviously can’t be expected to keep the goal count against him less than three all the time, although he did it for a few games to fuel the Mohawks’ win streak.

Schneider has only won four games this season, while he also has four ties. To play as well as he has with only four wins to show for it is obviously frustrating. It’s obviously a far cry from last season when Schneider, with the Vancouver Canucks, had a 17-9-4 mark with a  2.11 goals against average. He was 20-8-1 in 2011-12 with a 1.96 GAA.

The scoring support obviously isn’t there for Schneider like it was in previous seasons. That’s why the Devils are still struggling below .500. All he can do is not get frustrated and keep playing at the top of his game. Patience will pay off for Schneider and his team in the long run.
