New Jersey Devils at New York Islanders - Gamethread #23

The Time: 1:00 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (7-13-2) at the New York Islanders (4-12-5)

The Previews: My preview from way earlier in the morning is here. For the Islanders side, Dominik at Lighthouse Hockey has this gameday post.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported on Fire & Ice this morning that Johan Hedberg will get the start and Matthew Corrente is out with the dreaded "upper body injury." Olivier Magnan-Grenier will take his spot in the lineup on defense. From the Islanders' official web site, Jon Sim has been recalled from Bridgeport as Trent Hunter will have a MRI today. I'm assuming he'll play?

A Song for Today: It's only appropriate to select the best progressive metal act ever to come out of Long Island: Dream Theater. Here's their one hit from the early 90s, "Pull Me Under."

Please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in today's game. It's OK to mention other NHL scores, but keep the conversation mostly on the Devils-Isles 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.
