For Canucks goalie Corey Schneider and Kings netminder Jonathan Quick, being on opposite sides of the ice against each other during the playoffs in nothing new to the both of them.
Before Quick and Schneider made it to the NHL, they were college hockey rivals, as Quick (UMass-Amherst) and Schneider (Boston College) duked it out in Hockey East between 2005-07. Before that, however, the two squared off in the semifinals of the New England Prep School Championships. Schneider played for Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., and Quick started for Avon Old Farms School in Avon, Conn.
It was Quick — a Connecticut native — and his Avon Old Farms squad that came out on top of the Marblehead, Mass., native’s Phillips Academy team.
