Blackwood will start Tuesday vs. the Golden Knights.

Blackwood allowed two goals on 17 shots after replacing Louis Domingue in last night's blowout loss in Buffalo. On the tail-end of a back-to-back, Blackwood will make his 18th start of the season. The 22-year-old has gone 3-4-3 with a 2.74 GAA and .895 SV% on home-ice this season so it'd be wise to avoid him with the Golden Knights in town.

Blackwood will be making his fourth straight start tonight after going 2-0-1 with a .923 SV% in the previous three.

Blackwood will start for the second straight night (@ CAR).

Blackwood allowed three goals on 31 shots in the Devils loss to the Flyers last night. Even with the loss, New Jersey will come back to Blackwood tonight in Carolina. He has lost two in a row and gave up seven goals on 36 shots in his only road start this season. With no rest and a terrible road matchup, Blackwood is a less than ideal option on Saturday.

Blackwood will start Thursday vs. the Rangers.

Blackwood allowed three goals on 22 shots in the Devils’ 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers last Thursday. Cory Schneider started the last two games but Blackwood will start tonight vs. the Rangers. Somehow the Rangers have only played in three games but their offence has been hot to start the season. This could be a high-scoring affair, making Blackwood a low-end starter on a nine-game slate.
