New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals - Gamethread #21

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (5-13-2) vs. the Washington Capitals (14-5-2)

The Previews: My preview from way earlier this morning can be found here. Check out Japers' Rink for their game thread in a little bit.

The Tribute: Confirmed by Tom Gulitti, the Devils will have a video tribute to Pat Burns and a moment of silence prior to the game.

Gameday Info: The Devils called up defenseman Mark Fayne from Albany. According to the team's official Twitter feed, he was originally called up under emergency conditions. However, but it doesn't appear that anyone new is injured. Odd. Anyway, he's now with the team and he might play tonight. If he does, I would suspect another rookie (Olivier Magnan-Grenier or Matthew Corrente) would sit. Anyway, as reported by Tom Gulitti, Johan Hedberg will start tonight for New Jersey. As for the Caps, Katie Carrera reported in the Washington Post's Capitals Insider blog that Mike Knuble remains injured and Michal Neuvirth will start in net..

A Song for Tonight: A song from the best album ever to be released off of Dischord Records: Dag Nasty's "Never Go Back" from the seminal Can I Say.

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-Caps game tonight. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. If you want to be negative; fine, but be rational. Most importantly: Let's go, Devils.
