Schneider credited defenseman Marek Zidlicky with saving a goal with the Devils hanging to a 1-0 lead and 8:59 left in the second period. Joe Vitale had batted the puck out of mid-air in the left circle and it bounced past Schneider's left pad, but Zidlicky was behind him in the crease to swat it away with his stick.
“I didn't really get a good look at it, but it looked like he whacked it away, so I guess I owe him dinner for that now,” Schneider said.
When Cammalleri said after the Devils' 4-2 win over Vancouver on Friday that Schneider owed the team dinner for finally getting his first win over his former team, Schneider joked that he would take his teammates to Red Lobster.
Schneider had a different restaurant chain in mind for Zidlicky's dinner. “Applebee's,” he said.
