New Jersey Devils at Buffalo Sabres - Gamethread #4

The Time: 7 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ (HD); Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (0-2-1) at the Buffalo Sabres (1-2-0)

The Previews: Die by the Blade will have coverage from the Sabres' perspective. My preview from this morning can be found here.

Gameday Info: Per Andy Boron's link post at Die by the Blade, the Sabres are understandably unhappy about Niklas Hjalmarsson's terrible hit on Jason Pominville. Thomas Vanek may move to the right side to replace his spot for tonight. As for the Devils, yes, they're still going with 16 skaters and John MacLean wants a solid performance regardless. Expect Adam Mair and Rod Pelley to be rotated in and out on the third line.

Oh, in other news reported by Tom Gulitti, Lou Lamoriello said that Brian Rolston is out with a sports hernia. He'll have surgery tomorrow and will be out for 4-6 weeks. I don't want the GameThread to be filled with Rolston-related comments or comments on who to call up. Please do that in this FanShot.

Please use this post to comment on today's game. Talk about that sweet play, lament about the errors, and everything else in between. As always, remember to keep those comments clean, relatively on-topic (digressions OK, outright off-topic stuff not OK), and legal. Go Devils!
