Does anyone have an explanation for Cory Schneider switching goalie masks in the middle of the game?
I was not able to watch the game in full, just watching the HNIC rewind right now.
Either way, I'm glad. I much prefer his old mask anyways.
Anyone got an explanation for it?

He got a pretty hard shot in the mask which was the reason he switched. Fought it off like a champ though. ;)

He took a shot up high and I think a strap broke off. They fixed it but I guess it fell off again and couldn't be fixed quick enough so he switched to his old one.

pretty sure something broke when he took that shot to the side of the dome seconds before that.
that's what the replay was for

He was hit in the mask with the puck mid game and it damaged his mask. They seemed to do some repairs and if I recall correctly he was wearing his new mask again when the game ended.

*edit*

That must be why it took so long to submit the post, a few guys beat me to it.

Think before you act, act before it's too late.

Did we implode yet?
