I won't go into this too much -- I have a lot of thoughts for tonight's postgame recap -- but I'm not surprised by this at all. I thought Hedberg just needed a night off and he got half of that tonight. With a full day off to rest between now and Thursday, you've got to go back to the guy who will be your backup for the rest of the season. No matter how long Kinkaid sticks around for, the No. 2 job is still Hedberg's until he absolutely forces DeBoer's hand. The question now is how long will Kinkaid be here? It's been more than a few days since Marty Brodeur was sidelined and this is starting to look and feel exactly like the Zubrus and Carter injuries. First, it wasn't serious. Then, it dragged on a little longer than the Devils made it seem before the player eventually landed on IR. Is Brodeur's back injury worse than the Devils originally let on? Or is his back in worse shape than the doctors originally thought? He was at the game tonight and looked to be in fine spirits, so I still don't think it's serious in nature, but we're starting to get to the point where it's fair to wonder just how serious it is.
