How NHL 20 became a hockey 'lifeline' during the coronavirus pandemic, and what comes next

For a goalie who had just faced 102 shots on goal, Cory Schneider of the New Jersey Devils was looking curiously rested in his postgame interview. In fact, he hadn't even broken a sweat during the game.

"There are games where you just have to give a lot of credit to your teammates. Tonight probably wasn't one of them," he said. "It's good, though. It helps the numbers, pads the stats. It's a goalie's dream."

It was all a dream, in a sense. Schneider's 98-save performance in New Jersey's 6-4 win over the Calgary Flames on March 19 existed only in pixels and lines of code.
