Video: Schneider fans on puck behind net, loses shutout bid

Mar 23, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

Cory Schneider went out of his net to play the puck during Thursday’s game against Dallas. Everything went wrong for him after that.

That play was all that stood between Schneider and his third shutout of the season. Still, the goal proved to be moot as Vancouver won the game 2-1. When that play happened, there was still 12:12 remaining in regulation time, so Vancouver deserves some credit for shaking that off and holding onto their lead. It’s also worth noting that Schneider still has a stunning 1.60 GAA and .947 save percentage in 10 games since the All-Star break.

    Schneids really needs to work on his decision-making when the puck is behind the net. Great young goalie but in his short career he’s already cost himself a few goals (and cost the Canucks a playoff game) with this kind of thing.

    Great goalie, but maybe we can tie him to the front of the net or tell him the trapezoid was expanded to everywhere behind the net.

    He’s a fantastic goaltender with a bright future ahead of him but damn is he a bad puck handler. I swear that half his goals happen this way. (Mind you, that’s partly because he is otherwise flawless most of the time).
