New Jersey goes with Kinkaid

The Devils, losers in nine of their last 11, will turn to little-used Keith Kinkaid tonight when they take on the Islanders at Nassau.

Kinkaid has been up and down between New Jersey and AHL Albany this season and sat mostly behind Cory Schneider when up with the big club. Kinkaid has just four appearances on the season — and one start, a 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago — heading into tonight, but does have a solid 1.64 GAA and .943 save percentage overall.

The 25-year-old’s last outing came in relief of Schneider during Saturday’s 4-3 loss to Dallas, in which he stopped all three shots faced in just over 17 minutes of action (Schneider surrendered four goals on 33 shots.)

For the Isles, Jaroslav Halak will be in goal.
