Steve's busy working a New Jersey Nets game. Poor Steve! In any case, the Tampa Bay Lightning come to the Rock for the first time this season. The New Jersey Devils have the chance to rebound from Wednesday's loss. Will they do it?
TV: MSG Plus (HD)
Radio: WFAN 660 AM
Important Lineup News?: Yes. Per Tom Gulitti's earlier report this morning, Jay Pandolfo and Johnny Oduya will not play, Rod Pelley is back in the lineup, Andrew Peters will be scratched, and apparently Martin Brodeur will start. So expect at least one roster move tomorrow if Pandolfo and Oduya are indeed just resting for tomorrow.
If You're Going to the Game and If You Can: Bring a toy! It's Toys for Tots night. Do some good in the community as you enjoy (hopefully) seeing World Class Hockey by Jersey's Team.
Song to Get You Pumped Up And Is Better Than Steve's Selections: You know what Florida is known for in terms of music? DEATH METAL. Yes, death metal flourished in Florida in the late 80s and through the early 90s. I'm not really a fan of the genre, but all metal fans need to pay respect to the genius of the late Chuck Schuldiner and his group, Death. Here's Flesh and the Power It Holds from 1998's The Sound of Perseverence.
Join me in the comments as I attempt (again) to comment remotely from the Rock. Remember the rules. Keep the comments clean and relevant to the game (GOOD: comments about the game, something you saw on the broadcast, Devils-Lightning related talk; BAD: long, long discussions about what is/isn't good death metal, Tie Domi). And above all, support the New Jersey Devils.
