New Jersey is coming off a 4-3 win against the New York Islanders on Saturday
while the Canadiens lost 5-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Devils goaltender Keith Kinkaid made 27 saves against the Islanders and
improved his record to 22-10-3 with a 2.89 goals-against average and .910 save
“Kinkaid is playing lights out. There’s not much more you can say. He’s
stepped up and answered the bell. He’s carrying us right now,” New Jersey
forward Blake Coleman told the team’s website after scoring a short-handed goal.
“He’s a great guy and deserves all this praise. I don’t expect anything less
down the stretch.”
Devils forward Taylor Hall Sonny
Gray Jersey , a candidate for the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most
valuable player, scored his 35th and 36th goals of the season in the win against
the Islanders. He also is looking to reach the playoffs for the first time in
his eight-year career.
The Devils are 20-14-5 on the road this season, tied for the third-most
victories away from home in the Eastern Conference behind the Tampa Bay Lighting
(25) and the Boston Bruins (22).
Coleman’s goal was his third short-handed tally and New Jersey’s 11th this
season, tied with the Edmonton Oilers for the most in the NHL.
“We love our PK. We have a lot of speed and a lot of workers,” Coleman said.
“We have fun out there. We skate with the best of them. It’s certainly fun to
have that attack mindset when we turn pucks over versus just chucking the puck
down the ice.”

the season, the first time he has surpassed the 50-point plateau.
The Canadiens lost for the 38th time in regulation Saturday against the
Penguins. Montreal gave up three power-play goals against the Penguins and will
be looking to stay out of the penalty box against the Devils to avoid a repeat
of what happened against Pittsburgh.
“Especially against a team like that, which has talent and speed and is
capable of making plays out of nothing Cheap
Tre'Quan Smith Jersey ,” Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin told the
team’s website. “When you give them five power-play chances, it’s hard to stay
in the game.”
“Right now, I think there are guys who aren’t ready to pay the price on the
penalty kill and that winds up costing goals. At 5-on-5 it’s not that bad, but
our PK gave up three goals,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien told the team’s
website. “When you’re not ready to work or pay the price (you don’t win). We had
a few chances Authentic
