New Jersey Devils at New York Islanders - Gamethread #21

New, comments

The Time: 3:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+2 (Devils feed), MSG+ (Islanders feed); Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (11-8-1) at the New York Islanders (5-10-4)

The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, Dominik has this preview of this game over Lighthouse Hockey.

The Reminder: Tomorrow is the Devils annual coat drive. Bring a new or gently used coat for donation to tomorrow's game if you're going.

A Song for Today: For no reason at all, I'm selecting a track by a pirate-themed thrash band that hails from Mercer County, New Jersey. This is "Scurvy Back" by Swashbuckle. Eat some oranges so you don't bring scurvy back.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti has the rundown of news right before this afternoon's game in this post. Johan Hedberg and Al Montoya will be the starting goaltenders for the Devils and Islanders, respectively. Brad "Andy" Mills is back on the fourth line and he'll play with Tim Sestito and Cam Janssen. As for the Islanders, they lost Blake Comeau to waivers as Calgary picked him up per TSN. Who will replace his spot in the lineup? According to this post by Kevin Schultz over at Islanders Point Blank, it won't be Nino Niederreiter. He's scratched again. Instead, it will apparently be former Devils legend (at missing the net) Brian Rolston.

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 (namely, about the two teams in this game), and keep them legal (read: no illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests for one). Go Devils!
