NEWARK Martin Frk Jersey , N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils cleared the way for goaltending prospect Mackenzie Blackwood to rejoin the team by trading goaltender Keith Kinkaid to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a fifth-round draft pick in 2022.The Devils announced the deal Monday, hours before they made a second move on deadline day, trading forward Marcus Johansson to the Bruins for Boston’s second-round pick this year and their fourth-round pick in 2020. New Jersey will retain 40 percent of Johansson’s salary in the transaction.New Jersey, which is unlikely to get back to the postseason this year, also moved center Brian Boyle and defenseman Ben Lovejoy in the days leading up to the deadline. In return for the players who were going to be free agents after this season, it collected five draft picks and 24-year old defenseman Connor Carrick.“The Kinkaid thing was not even so much about Keith,” general manager Ray Shero said. “He’s done a great job here especially last season as we all know http://www.officialredwings.com/authentic-adidas-mike-green-jersey , but it was more about getting a chance for Mackenzie Blackwood up here with Cory (Schneider).Kinkaid had a 15-18-6 record in 41 games with a 3.36 goals-against average and .891 save percentage. The 29-year-old spent the past five seasons with New Jersey, posting a 64-55-17 record in 151 games with a 2.90 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.The undrafted free agent played his best in the second half of last season, taking over for an injured Schneider and leading the Devils to their first playoff spot since reaching the Stanley Cup Final in 2012.“For Keith, it was a situation where I think he’s getting a different opportunity,” coach John Hynes said. “For us, we’re excited to see Mackenzie. For Keith, it is something for him Nick Jensen Jersey , he’s learned a lot here. He’s played well and he’s been a big part of our team. It’s more of the nature of the business than it is him needing a change.”Blackwood, who was recalled from the AHL after the Kinkaid trade, was 6-4-0 in 13 games with New Jersey earlier this season. He had a 2.37 GAA.Shero also took the time to talk about MVP Taylor Hall, who has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since Christmas time. He has been skating but the team has never discussed the exact nature of his injury.Shero said the Devils expect to know more in the next week about Hall, defenseman Sami Vatanen (concussion) and forward Stefan Noesen (lower body).“He definitely wants to play,” Shero said of Hall. “He’s a hockey player. To me whether it’s Sami as I said, or Stef or Taylor they all love to play. At the same time Thomas Vanek Jersey , it’s not so much where we are in the standings. They all love to play and get back and play. But it’s not going to be a situation where we rush anyone back. I think the same thing will apply to Taylor.”Hall has played in 33 of the Devils’ 63 games this season with 11 goals and 26 assists. DETROIT (AP) — Down by two in the second period and still looking for their first goal of the night, the Detroit Red Wings simply kept competing.That perseverance paid off with a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks when Dylan Larkin scored the only goal in a shootout Tuesday.“I think it’s just going out there and working hard — and working hard for 60 minutes,” said goaltender Jimmy Howard, who made 40 saves. “Realizing that this game has a lot of ups and downs throughout the whole game and if you just continue to stick to it and continue to keep working for 60 minutes, some nights you’re going to get the bounces.”Justin Abdelkader and Gustav Nyquist scored in regulation for the Red Wings, who have won four of five. Howard denied Elias Pettersson, Nikolay Goldobin and Bo Horvat in the tiebreaker after stopping Horvat on a breakaway 20 seconds into overtime.“I think part of (being) resilient is guys stepping up and making plays at big moments Womens Adam Larsson Jersey ,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “And for a goaltender, it’s just making a whole bunch of saves and I thought Howie was a big difference that way.”Pettersson and defenseman Ben Hutton scored for Vancouver, which had won three straight. Jacob Markstrom made 28 saves.“Overall I thought we controlled the game. To let it slip kind of hurts,” Hutton said.Nyquist tied the game at 2 just 1:37 into the third period. His shot went off Markstrom’s pad and in off the leg of Canucks defenseman Troy Stecher for his second goal.Abdelkader’s power-play goal got Detroit on the board with 6:15 left in the second. He put in a loose puck from the slot for his third of the season.Hutton’s third goal with 8:39 remaining in the middle period gave the Canucks a 2-0 advantage. Hutton beat Howard with a screened wrist shot from the left point.The Red Wings challenged that the play was offside going into the zone, but the goal was upheld.Detroit had an apparent goal by Martin Frk reversed on a challenge by Vancouver at 5:36 of the second. Frk took a long pass at the Canucks blue line for a breakaway and beat Markstrom with a slap shot from the right circle. But the Canucks challenged that the play was offside and replays showed Frk was in the Vancouver zone before the puck, and the call was reversed.Pettersson gave Vancouver a 1-0 lead with 6:21 left in the first period on a slap shot from the top of the left circle off the rush. The rookie center already has 10 goals.NOTES: Vancouver RW Brock Boeser missed the game with a groin injury. He was replaced in the lineup by LW Brendan Leipsic. … Detroit recalled C Christoffer Ehn from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League. Ehn had an assist in nine games with the Red Wings earlier this season. … The Red Wings were without D Jonathan Ericsson (undisclosed), forward Andreas Athanasiou (leg) Cam Talbot Jersey , C Frans Nielsen (concussion) and forward Thomas Vanek (lower body) due to injuries.UP NEXTCanucks: At the Boston Bruins on Thursday.Red Wings: Host the New York Rangers on Friday.
