New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider left Friday’s game in Anaheim after sustaining an apparent shoulder injury in the first period. 

According to Rich Chere of the The Star-Ledger, Schneider was injured on a shot from Ducks forward Matt Beleskey in the first period, just :38 before allowing Corey Perry's 19th goal of the season. Schneider finished the period, but was replaced by Keith Kincaid at the start of the second. The Devils' backup is battling some pains of his own, however.
