Cory Schneider is 0-0-2 with a 2.36 GAA in his first two encounters against the Canucks.
Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) -
Cory Schneider had to fight for playing time when he was a member of the Vancouver Canucks, but the goaltender is the clear-cut No. 1 option for the New Jersey Devils.
Schneider will face his old team for the third time when his Devils visit the Canucks on Tuesday in the finale of a four-game road trip.
Roberto Luongo and Schneider once battled for playing time during their days suiting up for the Canucks, but neither netminder is with Vancouver any longer. Luongo has moved on to become the No. 1 goalie for Florida, while Schneider has become a workhorse for the Devils.
Time running out for Sharks' McLellan

At first glance, the San Jose Sharks appear to be a mildly disappointing team this season, but the club's record doesn't tell the whole story.
With over a quarter of the regular season in the books, the Sharks are 10-9-4 and within striking distance of a playoff spot in the highly competitive Western Conference. But, after the way the 2014 playoffs ended for San Jose, that may not be enough to save Todd McLellan's head coaching job.
The Sharks, of course, had the dubious distinction of joining the NHL's greatest playoff chokers last spring, losing four straight to the Los Angeles Kings after taking a 3-0 lead in the opening-round series.
