At the Rink: Canadiens at Devils

Keith Kinkaid faces another tall order Friday in his fourth NHL start.

The New Jersey Devils rookie goaltender should have some reinforcements in front of him.

Kinkaid will start at Prudential Center against the Montreal Canadiens, who have won four straight and seven of eight, and are one of seven teams in the League with at least 50 points.

Kinkaid is 1-0-2 in his first three starts, which have all gone to the shootout. He's seen elite competition already in the Chicago Blackhawks, New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning, all of whom join the Canadiens in the aforementioned 50-point category.

"I actually skated with him one time in the summer. I think he's from the area. He's a great goalie," Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty said Friday of Kinkaid. "Every goalie in this League is capable of putting up big games and he's no different from anyone else. But we just try to worry about our game and not worry about who we're facing."

At the Rink: Flyers at Hurricanes

Forward Jeff Skinner (flu-like symptoms) will not play for the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers, but center Jordan Staal is back in the lineup after missing the game Wednesday because of precautionary reasons.

Staal returned Monday after missing three months with a broken leg. He had an assist and played 19:01 in a 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, but was rested Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins because he felt pain in his leg. He will center a line Friday with Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm, one coach Bill Peters expects to match against Philadelphia's top line of Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Matt Read.

When asked about how the Hurricanes' lineup dynamic changes with a healthy Jordan Staal, Peters told the Hurricanes website, "Night and day."

"It gives you a match-up center and allows Eric to be a winger," Peters said. "He's a big man, but he spends a lot of time in the offensive zone too. He's a strong man on faceoffs. This is a good faceoff team we're playing against. Giroux and [Sean] Couturier take a lot of them. Now we have a guy who can answer that."

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding it, but you do think you can be successful at this level.

— Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, who defeated the Jets on Wednesday to improve to 6-0-1 since making his first NHL start on Feb. 18
