Where The Devil Goes To Freeze - Canucks vs Devils Gamethread

New, comments

Canucks host the Devils, and Cory Schneider returns as the opposing goalie.

Last time the Devils were in town, Luongo shut them out.  Also, Henrik's got swag.

Enemy territory: In Lou We Trust

Yes, we all know the story. After being traded to New Jersey at the draft, Cory Schneider returns to Vancouver and faces his former team and fans as the opposing goaltender. The media is going to be all over this today, especially with the high likelihood that Roberto Luongo is starting for the Canucks.

Of course, the Devils have more than just the one player, obviously. Ilya Kovalchuk ran back to Russia this summer, but New Jersey was able to replace him with NHL superstar and future HHOF honoree Jaromir Jagr. They still have Martin Brodeur as well, who played the Oilers last night in the back-to-back road game situation. (Welcome to Vancouver's Hell, we do the BC-Alberta overnighters all year long!)

Let's have some fun here. Coconuts go!
