Did his confidence seem to take a hit the rest of the game after that first goal(I'd be tempted to say yes seeing the final score)?
I wouldn't say so. I thought Schneider played really well. Sure the Moss goal was somewhat of a weak one, but I think that can be chaulked up to just being inexperienced with NHL shooters. He adjusted during the rest of the game, as in the dying seconds Iggy put a similar shot on goal, and Schneider wasn't fooled.
The Lombardi goal was just a sick pass from Iggy. I pretty sure most were expecting Iggy to shoot.
I think the Canucks have a good one in Schneider.
