Keith Kinkaid was pulled from Saturday's 5-3 Game 2 loss after allowing five goals on 15 shots.
Another rough outing for Kinkaid saw him allow four goals in a 10 minute span during the second period. Heading back to Jersey down 2-0 in the series, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Devils go with Cory Schneider for Game 3 to try and get back in the series. Kinkaid has given up nine goals on 46 shots through a little less than five periods of play so far in the series. Apr 14 - 6:15 PM

The New Jersey Devils will go back to Keith Kinkaid for Game 2 this afternoon against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Kinkaid had a rough start to his first playoff game but settled down midway through the second period. He'll need to be much better today if the Devils hope to go back to Jersey with the series tied.
Apr 14 - 1:45 PM

Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 31 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Kinkaid started the game strong, but had an eight-minute stretch between the first and second period where he allowed three goals to the Lightning. It will be interesting to see how long of a leash head coach John Hynes will give his goaltender if he has another tough outing in Game 2.

The New Jersey Devils will start Keith Kinkaid in Game 1 Thursday night.

This would have been a big surprise a few months ago, but going into the playoffs this was expected. Cory Schneider struggled mightily down the stretch and hasn't even won a game in 2018. Keith Kinkaid stepped in and has been great, so it makes sense that the Devils would decide to go with him for their playoff opener.
Apr 12 - 12:09 PM

New Jersey coach John Hynes is waiting until Thursday to reveal the team's starter for Game 1 of the playoffs against Tampa Bay.

Hynes wants to stick with the team's routine of announcing the starter the day of the game. He has already made up his mind, though, and it should be Keith Kinkaid. He helped lead the Devils into the postseason by outperforming Cory Schneider down the stretch.
Apr 11 - 2:38 PM

Keith Kinkaid was one of the primary reasons the Devils qualified for the playoffs this season.

Kinkaid took over for an injured Cory Schneider on January 23rd and went 19-6-1 since that date. Even more impressive, is that from February 13th, Kinkaid posted an incredible 16-2-1 record. He is also undefeated in regulation time in his last eight starts (7-0-1). Taylor Hall has been the offensive force behind the Devils' success this season, but Kinkaid deserves much of the credit for the team's turnaround as well.
Apr 7 - 10:30 AM

Keith Kinkaid turned aside 31 of 32 shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kinkaid gave up a power-play goal to William Nylander in the first period, but he managed to keep the Leafs off the board the rest of the way. He's now rattled off four consecutive victories to help the Devils clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Kinkaid now has a 26-10-3 record with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage this season.
Apr 5 - 9:57 PM

Keith Kinkaid will get the start in Thursday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

This will be his eighth straight start for the Devils (he's 6-0-1 during that stretch). Kinkaid owns a 25-10-3 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season.
Apr 5 - 6:19 PM

Keith Kinkaid turned aside 22 of 24 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the New York Rangers.

The Devils jumped out to a 2-0 lead before the four-minute mark of the first period and they never looked back. Kinkaid has now rattled off three wins in a row and he's been victorious in six of his last seven outings. He has a 25-10-3 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season. Kinkaid is clearly the Devils' number one goalie over Cory Schneider right now.
Apr 4 - 4:51 AM

Keith Kinkaid will be in the crease Tuesday against the New York Rangers.

This will be Kinkaid's seventh straight start. He started back-to-back games over the weekend and won both times. Kinkaid has a 24-10-3 record this season with a 2.84 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.
Apr 3 - 1:08 PM

Keith Kinkaid was excellent as usual in Sunday's win over Montreal.

Kinkaid stopped 25 of 26 shots as the Devils scored two third-period goals to beat the Habs 2-1. Kinkaid improves to 24-10-3 this season with a 2.84 goals against average and .911 save percentage. With the way Kinkaid has been playing, it would be tough to pass him over as the Devils starter come playoff time.
Apr 1 - 10:28 PM

Keith Kinkaid will start again on Sunday when the Devils visit Montreal.

Kinkaid was in goal for Saturday's 4-3 win over the Islanders. He has posted a record of 23-10-3 this season with a 2.89 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.

Mar 31 - 10:49 PM

Keith Kinkaid is expected to start Saturday against the New York Islanders.

Kinkaid is in the starter's crease during Saturday's morning skate. He has a 2-0-0 record against the Islanders this season with a 1.00 goals-against average and .965 save pecentage.
Mar 31 - 10:37 AM

Keith Kinkaid is the Devils' probable starting goalie for Saturday night's game against the Islanders.

Cory Schneider was working out on his own before the Devils' full skate which likely means he won't be starting Saturday night. Kinkaid is coming off a 35-save, 4-3 overtime loss to Pitsburgh this past Thursday. For the season, Kinkaid has a 22-10-3 record with a 2.89 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Check back with us shortly to see if Kinkaid gets confirmed as Saturday's starter.
