Devils backup goalie Keith Kinkaid, playing in his home town of Long Island, turned in a strong performance Monday night, stopping 31 of the 33 shots he faced in regulation and overtime before the Islanders recorded a 3-2 win in a shootout.
In five appearances this season, Kinkaid is 0-1-2. His goals-against average is an impressive 1.71. His save percentage isn't bad either, at .942. There's no point in picking him up for your fantasy team, though, since he doesn't play nearly enough. Cory Schneider gets the vast majority of starts for the Devils. Kinkaid's effort Monday night against the Isles was reminiscent of his start against the Blackhawks last week, when he blocked 37 of the 39 shots he faced in what also was a 3-2 shootout loss for the Devils.

Kinkaid has a 1.64 GAA and .943 save percentage in four contests in 2014-15.

The New Jersey Devils have called up Keith Kinkaid.

That's a bit of a surprise given that Cory Schneider has played in almost every game this season. Kinkaid was called up from the minors Tuesday afternoon while Scott Clemmensen was sent to the AHL. If you're wondering why the Devils would call up Kinkaid to make the start rather than just use Clemmensen given that he was already on the roster, the answer is likely rust related. Clemmensen hasn't played since Nov. 22 while Kinkaid has gotten an opportunity to work in the minors.
