New Jersey Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid (groin) and forward Brian Gibbons (broken thumb) were placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Kinkaid was injured in a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday at 12:15 of the first period after trying to make a save on Ivan Provorov's goal. He made four saves on seven shots before leaving and was replaced by Ken Appleby.

Kinkaid (7-4-2, 3.28 goals-against average, .892 save percentage) will be re-evaluated in a few days.

Gibbons, who has not missed a game this season, was injured when he blocked a shot during the second period Saturday; he will be re-evaluated on Monday. Gibbons has 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) and is tied for second on the Devils in goals.

The Devils host the Detroit Red Wings on Monday (7 p.m. ET; SN, MSG, FS-D, NHL.TV). They hope that starting goaltender Cory Schneider, who missed the game against the Flyers because of illness, will be ready to play. He returned to practice Sunday.
