Keith Kinkaid will be the Devils' starter Friday night.

It will be the second half of a back-to-back set, so it's not too surprising that Kinkaid is getting some work. He has a 3-1-2 record, 2.59 GAA, and .928 save percentage in six games.

Travis Zajac registered an assist in the Devils' 3-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

He managed to return to the game, sporting a face shield, after he suffered a broken nose. Zajac is on a three-game point streak with him scoring three goals and three assists over that span. He's up to eight goals and 21 points in 25 games this season.

Taylor Hall defended his hit on Philip Larsen following Tuesday's game.

Hall smashed Larsen behind the net during the contest and the head appeared to be the principal point of contact. At the same time, Larsen's head was down and it didn't look like Hall was targeting the head. Larsen was taken off the ice on a stretcher, but fortunately the Canucks reported that he was alert and had full motion. "I tried to keep all my extremities kind of in close and I just wanted to make contact chest to chest and sometimes it doesn’t work out like that," Hall said.

Taylor Hall is a man who is allergic to staying off the scoreboard.

In fact with his goal and assist during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks, Hall now has a trio of multi-point games over his last four. For the season he's up to seven goals and 17 points in 17 games.
Dec 7 - 12:28 AM

Kyle Palmieri snapped his eight-game goal drought during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks.

Palmieri shot at a 13.5% clip last year for his first 30-goal season. Tonight's marker gives him four on the season and an 8.7% clip. If he can rise back up to his career's 11.6% clip, then he can at least top 20-goals.
Dec 7 - 12:27 AM

Ben Lovejoy scored his first goal of the season during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks.

Through 25 games this season he now has three points. For his career, he has 16 goals and 80 points in 359 games.
Dec 7 - 12:25 AM

Kyle Quincey recorded another two-point game during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Canucks.

The veteran defender now has a pair of such games this season, giving him seven helpers and nine points in 25 games this season.
Dec 7 - 12:23 AM

Cory Schneider beat his former club, the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Tuesday.

He turned away 22 of 24 shots, including three of four while on the kill. This is the first time in six games that Schneider has allowed fewer than three goals in a game. Another start or two like this and we can presume he's back to his usual excellent self. Until then, he rocks a 9-6-4 with a 2.60 GAA and a .912 save percentage.
Dec 7 - 12:22 AM

Jon Merrill will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Merrill has played in just five games this year and has no points and a minus-4 rating. This is his third consecutive game in the press box. Jacob Josefson will also watch from the press box.

Beau Bennett (leg) has been taken off injured reserve.

He was medically cleared to return from a leg laceration Monday and is ready to get back into the lineup on Tuesday night. Bennett has missed the last three games and he has seven points in 20 appearances.

Sergey Kalinin has recovered from his illness.

Kalinin was unavailable for two games. He has an assist in 17 contests this season.
Dec 5 - 2:23 PM

Beau Bennett (leg) is medically cleared to return to the Devils' lineup.

That would suggest that Bennett will be in the lineup on Tuesday, but he's also still on the injured reserve list at the moment, so nothing's official. The Devils need to clear a roster spot for him and it wasn't immediately clear how they would chose to do that. He has a goal and seven points in 20 contests this season.
