Maybe it is something about a winning streak or being adverse to winning two straight. If so, the Devils need not worry. They didn’t win their second straight, getting shutout in Hershey 3-0 Saturday night.

Hershey is led in goal by one of last year’s NHL playoff heroes, goaltender Braden Holtby who spearheaded the Washington Capitals strong playoff win that led to a seven game upset over the previous champion Boston Bruins.

On this night, Holtby stopped 35 Albany Devils chances. The Devils out shot Hershey 35-22 but couldn’t break through the young netminder.

Hershey scored a goal in each period. Coach Rick Kowalsky decided not to go back to Jeff Franzee after his Friday night victory over Adirondack, and instead switched to Keith Kincade.

Kinkade faced 21 shots, stopping 19. The last shot was on an empty net goal with just over two minutes left as Kowalski looked to get his team a man advantage and a jump. It failed.

Albany failed on the power play going 0-2. Hershey wasn’t much better, going 1 for 7. Zach Hamill and Jeff Taffe scored the real goals for Hershey. Jeff Kundratek scored the empty net goal.

The Devils will get stay off the ice for a game until Friday when the Connecticut Whale visit the Times Union Center for a 7:05 match.
