Arpon Basu: "Claude Julien wouldn't come right out and say it after the game, but it sounded very much like Keith Kinkaid will start against his former team the Devils in Montreal tomorrow night."

If Kinkaid can't play this game, then he may as well not play any... you have the 2nd half of a B2B against a team he has motivation to play well against and for which he knows the tendencies of most of the players; you have a team in front of you playing well and coming off a win, so there's less pressure to try to salvage points out of the B2B; and the opposition has not had a strong start to the year. If there's a game for Kinkaid to be called upon to play, hard to get a more suitable situation to have to use your back-up. He needs to come up with a big game on a personal level though, because he hasn't looked goo most of the year.

Agreed. If Price plays tonight on the backend of a B2B when we're playing 4 games in 6 nights,,, that doesn't bode well for the backup goaltender. If he can't do the job then MB better get on the phone and find someone who can.

JD placed on IR and Hudon called up. Sounds like a concussion.

Renaud Lavoie says his sources claim not a concussion or head/neck injury and that it was unrelated to the Ovechkin hit. All conjecture. Drouin has been in and out of the locker room all year, it seems, and he had a foot injury a couple of games ago too, so who knows.

According to CJ,,,, Byron is also out and looks like KK is in.

During his pregame press conference, Julien confirmed that Keith Kinkaid will get the start in goal. The start will be Kinkaid's first at the Bell Centre this season. Newly called up from the Laval Rocket, forward Charles Hudon will take Paul Byron's spot in the lineup, who is out with an injury. Jesperi Kotkaniemi meanwhile draws back into the lineup after missing the last seven games with a groin injury.

In years past we would be scrambling with injuries and the quality of players to call up would make the selections more difficult. Weal and Cousins have added some good stability and with Poehling, Evans and Hudon on the farm we appear to have some young depth at forward that makes these injuries a little easier to handle.

“You’re going to see some changes there in our lines tonight,” the coach said. “You’ll see it in the warmups. I moved a bunch of people around, so you’re going to see some different lines tonight.”

No kidding... Suzuki centering Domi and Armia, so the kids have displaced Max from the middle of the ice.
