Schneider lost his starting job down the stretch to backup Keith Kinkaid, who'd been more consistent over the second half of the season.
However, after Kinkaid allowed nine goals on 46 shots through the first two games against the Lightning, head coach John Hynes is going with the veteran who was supposed to be the starter all season long.
The Devils, trailing 2-0 in the series, got a bit of positive health news, as forward Marcus Johansson will be in the lineup. He's missed 35 regular-season and two postseason games due to a concussion suffered from a vicious hit from Boston Bruins pest Brad Marchand in January.
Johansson was taking rushes at practice on a line with Patrick Maroon and Pavel Zacha.
