Albany right wing Mike Sislo scored twice to push his season total to 15, a career high, and the Devils scored a pair of short-handed goals in the second

period to beat Adirondack, 4-2, at the Glens Falls Civic Center on Friday night.

The Devils (27-17-3-5) saw the return of goalie Keith Kinkaid from a lower body injury and he stopped 30 shots to earn his 19th win of the season.

Kyle Flanagan beat him 30 seconds into the second period to tie the game, 1-1, but the Devils got short-handed scores from Sislo and captain Rod Pelley before the period was out.

Adirondack (22-26-0-3) was 0-for-7 on the power play. Sislo’s second goal of the night at 5:14 of the third period chased goalie Yann Danis. Carson Chubak stopped the three shots he faced in relief.

Stefan Matteau also scored for Albany, beating Danis on the Devils’ first shot of the game. Adam Larsson had two assists in the win.

Through 11 of their 12 scheduled meetings, Albany is 6-4-1-0 against Adirondack this season.

The Devils will host Norfolk tonight at 5 at the Times Union Center, and will host Utica on Sunday afternoon at 3.
