New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider is looking forward to his trip to Music City for the upcoming NHL All-Star Game.

So much so, in fact, that Schneider displayed his custom-made leg pads – complete with interlocking guitars – for this weekend’s festivities. Perhaps the 29-year-old Schneider had music on the brain after the Devils dropped a 2-0 decision to the Metropolitan Division-rival Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Via NJ.com:

“It's tough, though, to end on a sour note like this.”

Alas, Schneider (22-15-5, four shutouts, 2.03 goals-against average) and the Devils (25-20-5) have made some sweet music thus far this season. 

After missing the playoffs in each of the last three campaigns, New Jersey is in the thick of the wild-card picture heading into the All-Star break.
