New Jersey Devils at Tampa Bay Lightning - Gamethread #29

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - VERSUS; Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (14-13-1) at the Tampa Bay Lightning (12-15-2)

The Previews: My preview from much, much earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's perspective, John Fontana has this preview up at Raw Charge.

A Death Song for Tonight: Do you need another reason why later-period Death rules? Check out the grooves and riffs on "Sacred Serenity" from the classic album Symbolic.

Gameday Info: Cam Janssen can be active, but he won't play tonight as Tom Gulitti confirmed this morning at Fire & Ice. Also, Gulitti confirmed that it will be Dwayne Roloson in net for Tampa Bay this evening. In other Lightning news, defenseman Pavel Kubina did practice with the team and took contact per Damien Cristodero's report from Tampa Bay's morning skate. He might play tonight; the team called up Evan Oberg just in case Guy Boucher needs a seventh defenseman, though. While this game is on VERSUS, Doc Emrick won't be calling the game as he will be honored for his induction into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in Chicago tonight.

Late Breaking Trade: It's a somewhat minor one? Gulitti confirmed the deal here at Fire & Ice: Devils get defenseman Kurtis Foster & goaltender Timo Pielmeier; the Ducks get Mark Fraser, Rod Pelley, and a seventh round pick in 2012. Feel free to talk about it here or in the comments of this FanShot.

As usual, you can use the comments in this post to discuss today's game before, during, and after it happens until the recap is up later tonight. 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: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). Go Devils!
