    Cory Schneider stopped 38 shots for his third shutout of the season, leading the New Jersey Devils to a 2-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.

    Schneider, who was selected as an All-Star for the first time in his career, is 12-6-2 in 20 starts on the road this season.

    Reid Boucher scored early in the first period for the Devils, who won for just the second time in the past seven games.

    Kyle Palmieri scored his team-leading 18th goal of the season 18 seconds into the third period. Joseph Blandisi was able to get a stick on the puck behind the net and tap it out to Palmieri, who stuffed a close-range shot past Coyotes goalie Anders Lindback.
