New, comments

The Time: 1:00 PM EDT

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (12-8-1) vs. the New York Islanders (5-11-4)

The Previews: Tom did the preview for this game this morning right here. Thanks, Tom. For the opposition's point of view, Dominik has this preview over Lighthouse Hockey.

A Song for Today: It's an early game, so here's your rather-loud wake-up call: "Drowning in Torment" by Whiplash from the fantastic album Ticket to Mayhem.

Gameday Info: Martin Brodeur will start this game for the New Jersey Devils as Tom Gulitti confirmed in this post-game post yesterday at Fire & Ice. Based on this morning's skate, Gulitti doesn't think there will be any other lineup changes. Meanwhile, Garth Snow told Katie Strang at ESPN that the Islanders have no plans for sending Nino Niederreiter back to juniors. Yet, he was a healthy scratch for three games in a row. So does that mean he'll play today? Who knows?

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. I'll try to comment sporadically from my seat in Section 1, Row 16, Seat 5 - also with @InLouWeTrust on Twitter. Please remember the rules here 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!
