Keith Kinkaid is in the record books as all of his first three starts have gone into a shootout.

Kinkaid picked up his first NHL win on Friday as he stopped all three Lightning shooters after overtime ended. He is 1-1-2 this season as he has also played twice in relief of Cory Schneider. Look for the netminder to see more action as the season progresses.

Jaromir Jagr had a quiet night in the Devils’ 4-0 loss to Washington on Saturday night.

Jagr had two shots on goal and a minus-one rating in 19:02, and hasn’t recorded a point in four games. Jagr is getting next to no help in New Jersey from an offensive standpoint, and that’s why he has just five goals and 20 points.
Dec 20 - 10:33 PM

Cory Schneider made 17 saves on 20 shots in New Jersey’s 4-0 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

So much for becoming one of the league’s better netminders. The Devils are not a very good team this year, and they have a lot of trouble scoring, so Schneider has no choice but to be close to perfect every night out. He has a 2.57 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season.
Dec 20 - 10:33 PM

Michael Ryder, Adam Larsson, and Jacob Josefson were all scratched Saturday against the Capitals.

The most surprising, and the most disappointing, is Ryder as he has no goals and just four points since his two-goal effort on November 6th, a 20 game span. He has gone pointless in his last eight.
Dec 20 - 7:47 PM

Mike Sislo has been recalled to the big club in New Jersey.

The 26 year old forward has one point in eight games with the Devils this season, but he has seven goals and 11 points for Albany of the AHL in 21 games.
Dec 20 - 5:49 PM

The New Jersey Devils put Michael Cammalleri on injured reserve (retroactive to Dec. 13) on Saturday.

Cammalleri has been pretty effective when healthy, scoring 11 goals and 15 points in 23 games. He's currently dealing with a lower-body injury.
Dec 20 - 1:27 PM

Jacob Josefson sat out Friday's game after tweaking a groin injury Wednesday.

Just an FYI as Tim Sestito drew back into the lineup. Consider Josefson day-to-day for now.
Dec 20 - 8:35 AM

Dainius Zubrus (leg) skated on his own before practice on Friday.

Zubrus has missed the last six games with cuts on the back and side of his knee. He has only two goals and four points in 28 games so if you are missing him from your lineup, you are in big trouble or haven't looked at your roster since the draft.
Dec 20 - 8:33 AM

Michael Cammalleri (lower body) skated on his own Friday.

He was not in the lineup Friday but he may be able to go on Saturday. Stay tuned for updates. He has 11 goals and 15 points in 23 games this season.
Dec 20 - 8:30 AM

Adam Larsson will be available on Saturday as he played one game in the minors on a conditioning stint before being recalled.

Larsson was out with the mumps and could draw back into the Devils lineup against Washington. He has a goal and four points this season in 17 games. Larsson has been a disappointment since going fourth overall in 2011, but to be fair, it does take defensemen a lot longer to establish themselves than it takes forwards in the NHL.
Dec 20 - 8:28 AM

Cory Schneider will be between the pipes on Saturday.

Schneider got a rare night off on Friday as Keith Kinkaid got the shootout win. Schneider is 11-15-3 this season with a 2.55 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Adjust your lineup accordingly as the Devils take on the Washington Capitals.
Dec 20 - 8:25 AM

Adam Henrique had a goal and an assist to help lead the Devils get a 3-2 shootout win over the Lightning on Tuesday.

Henrique opened the scoring for the Devils and added an assist on Patrik Elias' marker later on. It was the 24 year-old's first goal since back on Dec. 8. He is quietly having a nice season with 20 points in 27 games with a +2 rating. With a hot streak he might be able to hit the 25 goal plateau like he did last season.
Dec 19 - 11:45 PM

Keith Kinkaid earned his first NHL win by stopping 26-of-28 shots in the Devils 3-2 SO win over Tampa Bay on Friday night.

The 25 year-old was making his third start in the NHL and helped his team snap a five game losing streak. Even more impressive is the fact that the rookie got the win over a strong Tampa Bay side and stopped all three Lightning shooters in the overtime. Perhaps the Devils will give Cory Schneider a few more days off if they get performances like these from the backups.
Dec 19 - 11:37 PM

Confirming an earlier report, Keith Kinkaid will indeed get his third start of the season Friday night against Tampa Bay.

In three starts and five games played, he's allowed just five goals on 86 shots so far this season.

Adam Larsson (mumps) will only spend Friday in the AHL on his current conditioning stint.

Larsson might play on Saturday against Washington as a result. He has a goal and four points in 17 games this season.
