The Previews: Ivano M of Fear the Fin has this preview up describing the Sharks as "schizophrenic." Megalodon of the looser Battle of California has a preview utilizing the Newspeak "doubleplusungood" in it's title. My preview from earlier today is hoping and demanding "improvement" from the Devils.
Gameday Info: As reported by Rich Chere earlier today, the Devils will face Antero Niittymaki tonight. That's not all for San Jose. This Sharks update from David Pollak of Working the Corners reports that Scott Nichol will be playing and that new father Joe Pavelski is expected to play.
A Song to Pump You Up? Sure: You know, I'm bringing it back. This is Röyksopp's It's What I Want. Incidentally, the video clip here comes from Design for Dreaming, notably riffed on MST3K back in the day. Anyway, the main chorus of the song is entirely appropriate: "It's what I want that's easy. It's getting it that's complicated."
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 the Devils-Sharks game tonight. Again, Matt will take care of the late-night recap, so be cool to him. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. Most importantly: Let's Go, Devils!
