NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils placed goalie Cory Schneider on injured reserve with a lower-body injury suffered Thursday night in a 5-4 overtime victory at Ottawa.
Schneider left after the second period. Keith Kinkaid replaced him and stopped all nine shots he faced to earn the victory.
With Schneider sidelined, Kinkaid was expected to start Friday night at home against San Jose.
The Devils recalled goalie Scott Wedgewood from Binghamton of the American Hockey League.
The Devils catch a scheduling break with a week off until their next game Oct. 27, the first day Schneider is eligible to return.
Schneider is 4-1-0 in six games this season with a 3.30 goals-against average.
