The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (3-9-1) at the Chicago Blackhawks (7-6-1)
The Previews: Here's my preview from early this morning. For the other side in tonight's game, McClure has this preview up at Second City Hockey which doesn't contain a lot of confidence in the Chicago squad based on their last game.
Gameday Info: As noted in McClure's preview and reported here by Rich Chere, the Chicago Blackhawks are going with 10 forwards and 8 defensemen. I am hoping, hoping, hoping that John MacLean picks up on that; but I have my doubts. Anyway, from Chere's post, Marty Turco and Martin Brodeur will be in net tonight. Per this pre-game post by Tom Gulitti, MacLean liked pairing Colin White with Henrik Tallinder on Monday so he may do it again.
The Talking Red Shill: Talking Red now has a website and a RSS feed button too! And it's on iTunes too!
A Song for Tonight's Game: If you enjoy sound, you should enjoy Chicago's post-rock instrumental legends Tortoise. Here's one of their more recent singles: Prepare Your Coffin. Something Devils fans may do (figuratively, of course) if the winning doesn't start soon, if not already.
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-Blackhawks game tonight. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. Most importantly: Let's Go Devils!
