Eddie Lack stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced as the New Jersey Devils dropped a 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.

Lack was spotted a 2-0 lead but allowed three second period goals to allow the Minnesota Wild to earn the come-from-behind victory. Lack didn't play his sharpest game of the season in relief of the sidelined Cory Schneider. As he was being pulled in favor of the extra attacker late in the third, he had to hustle back to his net in order to prevent Minnesota's goaltender Alex Stalock from scoring. Lack drops to 2-4-0 on the season with a 4.02 goals-against average and a .870 save percentage.

Eddie Lack could get the start Sunday against Boston.

Coach John Hynes was not happy with the second period performance of Keith Kinkaid Saturday as he allowed three goals which should have been stopped.

He started the season with Calgary but they waived him after a 1-2 start with a 5.29 GAA and a .813 save percentage.

It will be interesting to see if Eddie Lack gets to start Thursday against his former team, the Calgary Flames.

Lack began the season with Calgary, but he only ended up making two starts and four total appearances with them before the Flames put him on waivers on Nov. 23. He went unclaimed and was sent to the minors. The Devils acquired him in December, but didn't summon him until Feb. 4 due to Cory Schneider's groin injury. He made his first appearance with the Devils on Tuesday in relief of Keith Kinkaid. Lack would like a chance to face the Flames and he wasn't happy with the fact that they hardly used him there. "Honestly, I don’t even think it had anything to do with Smitty," Lack said, referring to Calgary starter Mike Smith. "He played really, really good but I can’t see why you can’t have two goalies going. That’s something that these guys [the Devils] have done good here. They’ve got two goalies going and both are getting wins."
Feb 8 - 6:12 AM

Eddie Lack made his debut with the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

Lack didn't get the start, but he came in midway through the contest because Keith Kinkaid had been lit up. Lack turned aside 11 of 12 shots in the Devils' 5-3 loss to Ottawa. He's up from the AHL because Cory Schneider is dealing with a groin injury.
Feb 7 - 6:01 AM

Eddie Lack has been recalled by New Jersey.

Lack will serve as Keith Kinkaid's understudy, while Cory Schneider recovers from a groin injury. The Devils also assigned Ken Appley to the minors in a corresponding move.
Feb 4 - 10:33 AM

The New Jersey Devils have acquired Eddie Lack from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Dalton Prout.

Lack will report to AHL Stockton. This move provides the Devils with some added goaltending depth, but it seems the Devils intent is to lean on Cory Schneider. Keith Kinkaid has struggled in limited playing time as the team's backup this season, so Lack provides them with a potential alternative down the road as well as some added injury insurance.

Eddie Lack went unclaimed on waivers.

Calgary sent Lack to the minors as a result. Lack got off to an ugly start this season with a 1-2-0 record, 5.29 GAA, and .813 save percentage in four games. At one point he looked like he had starter potential, but now the 29-year-old netminder will have to prove that he's worth being on an NHL roster at all.

Eddie Lack was given the hook in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Lack got the start because Mike Smith has been dealing with an injury. The Flames goaltender lasted under 25 minutes, as he allowed five goals on 15 shots. Lack now has 1-2-0 record with a 5.29 goals-against-average and a .813 save percentage this season. Jon Gillies entered the game in relief of Lack, and he allowed three goals on 12 shots. Neither one of these goaltenders will carry any fantasy value.
