Brodeur: Schneider In The Net Now To Stay

Cory Schneider already usurped Roberto Luongos starting job in Vancouver. Now it appears hes done the same to Martin Brodeur in New Jersey.

Schneider will make his third straight start tomorrow at home versus his old team, the Canucks a decision New Jersey head coach Peter DeBoer said was difficult to make, what with the other guy being the greatest goalie of all time and whatnot.

The Devils have only won once in their first nine games, so DeBoer cant afford to worry about anything but turning things around. Schneiders save percentage is .917; Brodeurs is .865. Put like that, the decision isnt a particularly tough one.

I think [Schneider's] in the net now to stay, said Brodeur. I dont think thats going to change. Ill be ready if it does.
