Devils Daily: Which Devils Goaltender Starts Tonight?

It’ll be interesting to see what New Jersey Devils goaltender leads the team onto the ice tonight. Head coach Lindy Ruff commented on the fact that he wants to keep playing Vitek Vanecek in order to show confidence in the Devils’ goaltender. However, Akira Schmid certainly feels like he’s the more stable presence in the crease.

There will be no morning skate today, so we’ll talk to Ruff at 5 PM. It’s unlikely he’ll disclose what goaltender is starting anyway, so we’ll have to wait for warmups.

Elsewhere, analysis on why Schmid should be the starter moving forward, Vanecek opens up about struggles, Boston demotes their captain, and more.

Let’s do that hockey.

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Hockey Now: New Jersey has been winning games lately in spite of Vitek Vanecek’s poor play. There’s no question that Devils goaltender Akira Schmid should be the starter moving forward.

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado Hockey Now: Through the quarter mark of the season, the Avalanche sit in first place in the Pacific Division. What’s working for them? What isn’t?

Florida Panthers

Florida Hockey Now: Now that Patrick Kane has made his decision to play in Detroit, the Panthers are focusing their attention elsewhere. GM Bill Zito was straightforward stating Florida wants to keep Sam Reinhart.

Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Hockey Now: People are fascinated with players like Patrick Kane. That’s why the latest sweepstakes were so enticing. Here’s what draws people’s interest to Kane and players cut from the same cloth.

New York Islanders

NYI Hockey Now: The Islanders continue to drop games in which they lead. That happened again on Tuesday when the Devils mounted a three-goal comeback in the third period to send the Islanders home pointless. Someone needs to be held accountable for New York’s late-game lapses.
