Keith Kinkaid allowed two goals on 19 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Blue Jackets didn't light up Kinkaid, but Scott Harrington's game-winning goal was pretty weak. The loss puts an end to Kinkaid's three-game winning streak. He'll head into his next start with a 13-8-2 record, a 3.12 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage. Kinkaid will keep serving as the Devils starting goaltender until Cory Schneider returns.

Taylor Hall found the back of the net in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Hall has now picked up at least one point in each of his last 19 games. The Devils forward picked up the puck in his own end, skated up the right side and beat Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky with a shot he probably should have stopped. Hall finished the game with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal and one blocked shot in 21:22 of ice time. He isn't a Hart Trophy favorite, but his name has started coming up in the conversation lately. Nico Hischier registered the assist on New Jersey's only goal.

It's the fourth time in five games that Mueller will watch from the press box. The 22-year-old has no goals and two assists in 19 games this season. Nick Lappin will also serve as a healthy scratch, while Miles Wood is out because of a suspension.

Kinkaid has been strong in the net of late as he is 13-7-2 this season. His peripherals are not great as he has a 3.17 GAA and a .897 save percentage.

Nico Hischier scored in his fourth straight game Sunday.

The talented center was selected first overall in 2017 by the Devils and he has not disappointed. he has 13 goals and 39 points in 59 games, impressing all. Teammate Kyle Palmieri thinks that Hischier (and fellow center Pavel Zacha) should shoot the puck more. "I think with both of them, they have some pretty underrated shots," Kyle Palmieri said. "They’re mostly pass first guys but Pav and Nico have great releases and great accuracy on their shots. As a guy who’s gotten a chance to play with both of them, I’d love to see them shoot more. I think the guys, as they year goes on, they keep getting better every game down the stretch. It’s going to be important for them to keep playing well and keep playing with confidence and playing in some hard minutes for us." The Devils future is bright.

Pavel Zacha scored for the second straight game Sunday.

Zacha has only six goals and 19 points in 52 games this season but has come on of late with three goals and seven points in his last 10 games. Zacha was taken sixth overall in 2015 and is still only 20 so his future is starting to look brighter.
