NHL Game Summary - Dallas at New Jersey



(Thursday, January 9th)

Final Score: New Jersey 1, Dallas 0

Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Ryder registered the game's only goal and Cory Schneider notched a 26-save shutout, as the New Jersey Devils downed the Dallas Stars, 1-0, on Thursday at Prudential Center.

Ryder scored his 15th of the season in the second period to provide Schneider with all the support he would need, as the 27-year-old netminder turned away all comers to secure his third shutout of the season and 12th of his career.

"I had to be good at the moments I had to be good, but I thought, as a group, we had to earn this 1-0 win as a team," Schneider said.

The victory snapped New Jersey's three-game slide and sent the Stars to a fourth consecutive setback, despite a solid 33-save effort from goaltender Kari Lehtonen.

Following a scoreless first frame, New Jersey jumped on top just over eight minutes into the middle stanza thanks to some good work behind the Dallas net from Travis Zajac.

After winning the puck, Zajac wheeled around just below the right circle and centered the puck for Ryder, who buried a one-timer from between the circles for a 1-0 lead at 8:17.

Dallas had a prime opportunity to pull even after Stephen Gionta was called for a high-sticking double-minor at 14:56, but Schneider came up with a number of big stops on the extended man-advantage to maintain New Jersey's slim lead.

"We gave them a lot of chances in the second period," Dallas center Tyler Seguin said. "It wasn't very good at all."

Schneider capped the shutout by turning aside nine shots over the final 20 minutes.
