Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid leaves game against Hurricanes because of injury in 2nd period @NHLdotcom

NEWARK, N.J. - 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.
