Schneider covers up a lot of our mistakes - those spectacular saves Luongo is making only look that way because of his positioning.
Luongo likes to sprawl out and make desperation saves (like on Torres gm. 2, Havlat game 1.) where Schneider can slide post to post faster.
Schneider should have fared better (based on previous stats), I think he saves the late tying goal but the Sharks have shooting quite a bit on spots where Cory is usually weak.
The Couture goal (gm. 1) was a goal Cory likely gives up as well. There's been
shots that have been going 5 hole that Luongo has saved (although has looked shaky) that Cory may have let in.
I think the SJ team is shooting based on scouting for Schneider, usually a playoff team tries to get Luongo moving laterally but I haven't seen much of that this series.
