Former Union goaltender Keith Kinkaid collected 24 saves to earn his second shutout of the season on Wednesday, leading the AHL's Albany Devils to a 3-0 win over Hartford at the Times Union Center.
Kinkaid, who also blanked Hartford behind a 25-save showing last Friday, was at his best late in the game with 11 third period stops.
It was the netminder's sixth consecutive victory, tying Jeff Frazee's franchise record. Kinkaid improved to 7-1-1 on the season with a league-leading 1.75 goals against average. His .930 save percentage ranks fourth.
Kinkaid's former Union and current Albany teammate, Kelly Zajac, picked up a second period assist in Wednesday's triumph. The forward has a goal and two assists in 11 contests this season.
On Monday, Kinkaid was named AHL Player of the Week after going 3-0 with a 0.97 goals against average and a .963 save percentage in three starts last week.
