Kinkaid will start the first game for the Devils' back-to-back.
Kinkaid allowed two goals on 33 shots in the Devils 3-2 loss to the Islanders on Monday. Kinkaid is still searching for his first career victory—he enters play tonight at 0-1-2 with a 1.72 GAA and .942 SV%. Tonight he will take on a Lightning team who are 5-4-1 in their last 10—they have averaged just 2.30 goals per game over that stretch; way below their 3.30 they have on the year.
Kinkaid stopped all three shots that he faced in relief of Cory Schneider on Saturday. In his only start since being recalled he stopped 37 of 39 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks. He has yet to record a win, but has posted a nice 1.64 GAA and .943 SV% in four games. Tonight will be a big night for him as he gets the start on Long Island, very close to his hometown.
The Devils have recalled Keith Kinkaid and he will make his first NHL start.
Kinkaid has gone 7-2-3 with a 2.19 GAA and .923 SV% in 13 games with Albany (AHL) this season. He has three career NHL games, all of which were relief appearances—he has a total of 53 minutes played in the NHL and he has allowed two goals on 25 shots (.920 SV%). Stay away from him tonight with the Blackhawks in town.
The Devils have recalled Keith Kinkaid from Albany (AHL).
The Devils placed Scott Clemmensen on waivers on Monday, so it looks like he will be sent down, which means Kinkaid is on his way up to be Cory Schneider's backup. Kinkaid has gone 4-0-2 with a 1.95 GAA and .931 SV% in six AHL starts this season.
Devils send Cam Janssen and Keith Kinkaid to Albany. Don't get excited about Brodeur. Jeff Frazee comes up.
Kinkaid didn't get a start during his call-up but he did replace Johan Hedberg yesterday and allowed one goal on 13 shots. The Devils are probably sending him down and bringing Frazee just so that Kinkaid can get some starts, because he wasn't getting them in the NHL.
