The Time: 7 PM EDT

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (2-4-1) vs. the Buffalo Sabres (2-5-1) - Season Series: 1-0-0 to NJ.

It's Hockey Fights Cancer Night at the Rock:And there will be multiple ways to contribute. The Devils player's wives & girlfriends will collect cash donations at the door; proceeds from the purchases of any Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise from the Devils Den will be donated; you can purchase a Mystery Puck for $20 (1 per person, cash only, supplies are limited), which will go to charity as you get a puck signed by a random Devil. On top of this, the Devils (in partnership with the NHL) will contribute $10,000 to the Newark Beth-Israel Medical Center Foundation. So if you're going to the game, please know you have the opportunity to help out a bit.

The Previews: My preview from earlier today can be found here. For a Buffalo-based perspective, check out Die by the Blade. Speaking of previews, expect the preview for tomorrow's Rangers-Devils game to be a little later than usual.

Game Info: Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge and the Buffalo News is convinced that Patrick Lalime will start for the Sabres tonight; but it's unconfirmed at this time. No change for the Devils save for Johan Hedberg starting in net, something that was known yesterday.

After having a bite at MMMBello's in Newark (literally right outside of Newark Penn Station), I'll be in my usual seat (Sec. 1, Row 16, Seat 5)at the Rock. I'll be commenting from time to time by mobile. Still, please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in tonight's game. It's OK to mention other NHL scores, but keep the conversation mostly on Devils-Sabres. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. Most importantly: Let's Go Devils!
