Devils G Keith Kinkaid injured in second period
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) New Jersey Devils rookie goalie Keith Kinkaid was forced out in the second period against the Carolina Hurricanes after he was injured while stretching for a shot on Saturday night.
Kinkaid was injured with 6:01 left in the period. He stopped an initial shot by Eric Staal and appeared to sustain a lower-body injury while stretching to come across the crease for a potential rebound attempt.
He lay on the ice for a couple of minutes before slowly skating off to the dressing room. Kinkaid stopped all 17 shots he faced before leaving, and the Devils had a 3-0 lead.
No. 1 New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider, who was getting a rare night off, replaced him in net.
