New, comments

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV- MSG+, Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (4-5-1) vs The Philadelphia Flyers (7-4-1)

The Previews: Kevin's preview from earlier this morning is right here for your reading pleasure. For the opposition's side of things, Travis Hughes has this pre-game news update at Broad Street Hockey.

A Song for Tonight: Continuing the theme of New Jersey based bands being linked here, here's "Rattlesnakes" by Bruce Banner The Banner. If I recall correctly, the singer is a Devils fan; but I'm not terribly positive about that.

Gameday Info: Did you want to see the Devils make any changes to their forward lines tonight? Well, too bad. As reported by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, Peter DeBoer's not changing them. Before you get mad, please read the post to see what he has to say about that. Therefore the only change for New Jersey will be at goaltender; Johan Hedberg will start in net against Sergei Bobrovsky and the Flyers.

Frank Seravalli reported at Frequent Flyers at Philly.com that Matt Read, Brayden Schenn, and Chris Pronger will all not play this evening. Based on this tweet by Seravalli, Danny Briere might play since the Flyers sent Ben Holmstrom down to the minors today. If he doesn't, Harry Zolnierczyk is expected to play in his place.

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!
