Gameday Info: Remember winger Nick Palmieri? Apparently, he wasn't sent back to Albany according to Tom Gulitti and Gulitti tweeted today that he will play. Who will he replace? Well, in last night's game, Tim Sestito got "banged up" and his status was brought up when Jacques Lemaire was dealing with the media. Here's Lemaire's quote per Gulitti:
"He got hit early in the game, probably mid-first period and wasn’t skating as well after that," Lemaire said of Sestito. "But (Wednesday) he played really well and he was still fine because I used him at the end on the wing."
On the wing. Hmm. I would venture a guess and say Sestito would be sat for Palmieri if it came to that. After all, Lemaire can choose Adam Mair or Rod Pelley to center the fourth line.
A Song For Tonight: It's a new year, here's a song whole lot of cowbell: The Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers."
A Song...Of Something Else: I found this at HFBoards. A rapper by the name of Kherk Cobain (of the 151 Feva Gang, of course) penned this tune where the New Jersey Devils are frequently called out in "Rock Your Red." (Warning: Song has a whole lot of cursing, cussing, and some shout out to the city of Pittsburgh.) Rap's not my thing so I can't really say whether this is good, bad, or just plain "meh" (though it smokes that infamous "Feels like '93" rap for Montreal a few years back). But I can appreciate someone's showing some love for the NJD. Maybe it'll inspire other artists/bands to put Devils highlights in their videos and/or wish about being in a box with Cory Booker and having season tickets.
Please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in this game. If you want to talk about other games, please talk about them in the Other Hockey Games Open Thread for the day. (EXCEPTION: Winter Classic stuff is fine, if the mood so strikes you.) As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. If you want to be negative; fine, but do be rational as nobody needs any nonsense from anyone. Most importantly: Let's go, Devils.
