Team USA has its starting goalie for tonight’s World Cup pre-tournament rematch with Team Canada.

According to numerous reports, Cory Schneider will get the start before Ben Bishop takes over to begin the third period.

Head coach John Tortorella went with that plan in Friday’s game, the only difference being that Jonathan Quick started and Bishop took over for the final 20 minutes.

Last season with the New Jersey Devils, the 30-year-old Schneider posted four shutouts and a .924 save percentage in 58 games.
