While the New Jersey Devils goaltending has been a source of recent stress, the Albany Devils have not struggled with such problems.

The three-headed monster of Keith Kinkaid, Jeff Frazee and Scott Wedgewood have combined for an .899 save percentage and 2.65 goals-against average in 59 games.

Toss out Wedgewood's so-so three games, and Frazee and Kinkaid have combined for a 2.62 goals-against and .912 save percentage.

No Albany Devil has recorded more points in two years than Joe Whitney.

The 5-6, 170-pound winger's game is tenacious and feisty. Playing such a game has enabled him to record 85 points in 122 AHL games in Albany.

"He's playing with intensity, he's competing," Albany coach Rick Kowalsky said Sunday after Albany's 2-0 loss to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. "He's not a big guy, but he's strong on the puck. He's been doing it all for us.

Stefan Matteau played just 5:11 of ice time in Saturday night's 2-1 loss to Montreal.

Less than 24 hours later, according to Mikael Lalancette of Quebec's TVA Sports, Matteau was shipped back to juniors on Sunday.

Matteau netted just one goal and had two assists in 17 games with New Jersey. The 19-year old was a healthy scratch for three straight games before Saturday and had not recorded a point since New Jersey's loss in Buffalo on March 2.
