The Time: 7:00 PM EDT
The Broadcast: TV - MSG+(HD); Radio - 660 AM WFAN
The Matchup: The New York Rangers (6-4-1) vs. the New Jersey Devils (4-9-1)
The Previews: My preview from (way) early this morning can be found here, though the Gameday Info makes a chunk of it pointless. Blueshirt Banter will have something about the Rangers up soon enough (if not already by the time you see this).
The Gameday Info: This report is from Tom Gulitti, though you may already know it by now. Colin White is sick with the flu, Martin Brodeur will not play tonight because of his bruised elbow, and Jeff Frazee (who will be Johan Hedberg's backup) and Alexander Urbom (who will, well, play on defense) have been called up to fill in. It's unfortunate that Brodeur can't play tonight, but at least he'll have tonight and the next 4 days to rest that elbow. As for the Rangers, Andrew Gross (also of the Record) reported that Ryan Callahan will be out tonight after sustaining a nasty hit from a Flyer and that Henrik Lundqvist will start in net tonight.
A Song to That Should Excite You: I do not think that you really need a tune to get excited, since it is Devils vs. Our Hated Rivals. Still, I figured I should offer one anyway. The band is Dark Angel, the song is Leave Scars, and the riffs and beats are brutally delicious. P.S. Any Rangers fans who read this, this song may be more of your liking.
Joshing aside, do remember to behave. Anyone from ILWT who causes any grief at Blueshirt Banter will be punished accordingly.
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-Rangers game tonight. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. Most importantly: Let's Go Devils!
