The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+2; Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (9-7-1) at the Tampa Bay Lightning (9-7-2)

The Previews: My preview from way earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, John Fontana has a preview of tonight's game up at Raw Charge.

A Song for Tonight: This will be the fourth game of the Devils' five game road trip. After the back-to-back with Boston and Buffalo and with the fifth game coming up on Monday, the Devils are still going to have to battle through to put in a good effort this evening. They must, to quote the late, great Death frontman Chuck Schuldiner, "Bite the Pain."

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported at Fire & Ice from this morning's skate that it appears Mattias Tedenby will be on the fourth line to at least start the game. In this separate post by Gulitti, Tedenby is pleased to be back in the lineup and Zubrus said he feels fine. As for the Lightning, Damian Cristodero's report from their morning skate at Lightning Strikes confirms that Ryan Malone will return to action tonight. As a result, forward Blair Jones and defenseman Bruno Gervais will be scratched. Both reporters noted that the starting goaltenders will be Dwayne Roloson and Martin Brodeur for each side.

As usual, you can use the comments in this post to discuss tonight's game before, during, and after it happens until the recap is up. Please remember the rules at all times, namely: keep your comments clean, keep them on topic, and keep them legal (read: no illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests for one). Go Devils!
