Now Commenting On:

There's no doubt that the Devils have struggled to score when Cory Schneider is in the net. Just how much different is the scoring in front of Brodeur and Schneider?

Cory Schneider 

Games played: 9 (PIT - 0, VAN - 2, WPG - 0,  NYR - 4, CLB - 1, VAN - 2, MIN - 0, TOR - 1, LA - 0)

Average goals for: 1.11 goals per game

Record: 1-5-3

Current Stats: 1.98 gaa, .918 save %, one shutout

Martin Brodeur

Games played: 10 (NYI - 3, EDM - 4, CGY- 2, OTT - 2, BOS - 4, TB - 2, PHI - 0, PHI - 3, NSH - 5, NYR - 3)

Average goals for: 2.8 goals per game

Record: 5-3-2

Current Stats: 2.08 gaa, .915 save %, two shutouts

You can certainly chalk it up to the opponent more than anything else, but there is a stark difference between the amount of goals the Devils have scored with Brodeur in net as opposed to Schneider. The team has been shut out in four of Schneider's nine starts. For Brodeur, the team has scored three or more goals in six of his ten starts.

Whatever the reason for the lack of production when No.35 is in net, if the Devils hope to find their way into the Metropolitan Division playoff picture, they'll need to start scoring for Schneider.
