Henrique scores 20th goal as Devils fall to Islanders

Devils topped by Isles: Three Things We Learned

by Julie Robenhymer @JulieRobenhymer / newjerseydevils.com

The Devils lost 2-1 to the New York Islanders, and here's what we learned. 

1) Keith Kinkaid made 36 saves on the night and has a career high of 21 starts in one season. We should expect to keep seeing him this season as Coach Hynes plans on rotating the goalies throughout the last five games of the season. 
 
Kinkaid is 7-12-3 on the season with a 2.70 GAA and .912 save percentage. 

2) Tonight's lone goal for the Devils was Henrique's 20th of the season, giving him three 20-goal seasons in his six NHL seasons. 

Henrique has 19 assists for 39 points in 77 games so far this season too. 

3) Michael Kapla earned the trust of the coaches in his first NHL game with structured defensive play along the blue line. He played 15:07 including 1:40 on the power play. Hynes said he'll be in the lineup against the Philadelphia Fliers. 

The Devils get right back at it today as they travel to Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia Flyers.
