New, comments

The Time: 4 PM EDT


The Broadcast: Local TV - MSG+ (HD); Radio - 1130 AM WBBR


The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (0-1-1) vs. the\Pittsburgh Penguins (0-2-0)


The Previews: For the Penguins' side, check Pensburgh for that side of today's game. My preview can be found here. Both will have a theme of, "We really could win this game;" and fortunately for one team, someone will get a W out of this when it's all said and done today.


Gameday Info: According to the team's official website, the Penguins mixed up their lines in practice yesterday; head coach Dan Bylsma wants to see what David Letestu can do with Evgeni Malkin on his wing. Not a bad player to have on your wing. Per Rich Chere yesterday, Paul Martin expects boos today, but it isn't going to let it get to him. To be fair, I think his situation was different than Scott Gomez' in that Martin didn't sign for big money with Our Hated Rivals.


As for the Devils' side, I'm not seeing any updates on Brian Rolston or Anton Volchenkov just yet. Bob McKenzie just tweeted that Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond was put on waivers. But that's pointless for today's game. He's suspended regardless, and he can't be assigned anywhere until tomorrow. In any case, please link to any news if you see any - or watch the game and see if anyone's wearing #12 and #28 for New Jersey.


Please use this post to comment on today's game. I'll try to chime in from my seat from time to time. Just remember to keep those comments clean, relatively on-topic (digressions OK, outright off-topic stuff not OK), and legal. Go Devils!
