Matt Schneider lives up to his early billing

With his next win, goalie Matt Schneider will tie Todd Sheridan for the program's lead in career wins. It's hard to believe this clutch performer's career is nearing its end. Looking back through old posts, I found this assessment of Matt's freshman campaign....

Matt Schneider has entered into folk hero status in the hockey program. Like a modern day Paul Revere or Johnny Appleseed, he’ll always be known as “the guy who shutout the Cardinals at Plattsburgh.” That wasn’t the only highlight of a nice rookie campaign that also saw him get a .903 save percentage and a 3.02 goals against average while securing the pressure cooker “must-wins” that closed out the regular season.
