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.
"(Kinkaid) has been good for us all year," Albany coach Rick Kowalsky said Sunday after Albany's 2-0 loss to Bridgeport. "Our goaltending hasn't been an issue."
The problem is, Kinkaid and Frazee -- and more recently Wedgewood -- have been doomed by Albany's sudden lack of offense. As was discussed Sunday, Albany's power play is converting just 11.4 percent of the time.
"We'd be sitting in a lot better position than we are now if it was better," Kowalsky said.
With Tim Sestito called up -- and perhaps another forward making the jump after Alex Ponikarovsky's recent injury -- offense may continue to be the A-Devils' downfall.
Most of you know that Stefan Matteau was sent back to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Sunday.
But what does that actually mean?
Matteau was eligible to return to Blainville-Brisbois because he is only 19-years old. When Blainville-Brisbois' season ends -- the Armada open a best-of-seven series with Acadie-Bathurst Thursday -- Matteau will be eligible to complete the year with Albany or return to New Jersey.
Matteau, who only recorded three points in 17 games, already has played in enough NHL games to start his waiver clock. I imagine since Matteau obviously was not quite NHL ready yet, the Devils are trying to let him gain some confidence and keep him from reaching the 160 games which also would remove him from waiver exemption.
