Video: Schneider, Gustavsson trade highlight reel saves (Update)

Dec 6, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

Update: Unfortunately for the New Jersey Devils, they weren’t lucky all Friday night, as the Detroit Red Wings beat them 3-1.

As it turns out, Cory Schneider might not have even had the most memorable save of that game, either. Check out Jonas Gustavsson‘s reflexes and/or luck in making this behind-the-back stop. Feel free to compare and contrast:

If you were to construct a list of the unluckiest goalies in the NHL, Cory Schneider might just be at the top. So it’s nice to see him get a break or two every now and then.

That happened on Friday, as he made a genuinely unusual save. And by that, I mean that his jersey made the save against the Red Wings:

The bounces haven’t been going New Jersey’s way that often, especially when Schneider’s been in net, but maybe that will change tonight.

Naturally, this will probably cause the competition committee to shrink goalie sweaters next summer. After all, we don’t want netminders draped in muumuus like Homer Simpson

    He’s not unlucky. The refs were out to get him tonight, too.

    i don’t know…

    i have a friend who uses his patrick roy replica sweater for paragliding in summer, and as a dust cover for his silver stream trailer in winter

    as danny galivan would have said, the puck appeared to get caught up in schneider’s paraphanelia, including those horseshoes clanking around in his pants

    as for gustuvvson, talk about spatial awareness; i see, i feel, i am…

    the monster
