The New York Islanders are seeking a quick offensive turnaround when they complete a short western road trip, and they appear to have a good chance against their next opponent.

Like many of his counterparts, New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider had an easy choice when presented with the option of larger nets or smaller equipment in the NHL’s latest bid to boost goal-scoring.
