Keith Kinkaid is close to returning to action following a groin injury a week ago.
Kinkaid was worried the injury was a lot more serious than it turned out to be. "I was really worried," Kinkaid said. "It's felt better every day. The MRI was good. It just takes time. It hasn't even been a week yet and I feel pretty good. The push was fine and the split was fine. Then I guess my weight eventually fell down and I felt a little tweak," Kinkaid said when explaining what happened. "I didn't feel comfortable to finish and put the team at risk. I don't know if I could have played at my full potential there and we needed those two points. If I wasn't feeling up to it, I didn't want to hurt them." Kinkaid is 3-4-3 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage in limited time as Cory Schneider's backup. Feb 28 - 8:14 AM

"It was Keith's decision on whether or not he felt he needed to come out. He wasn't sure, so you don't take a chance."
