New Jersey Devils vs. Dallas Stars - Gamethread #31

The Time of the Game: 8:00 PM EDT

The Time of Niedermayer's Ceremony: 6:45 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (16-13-1) vs. the Dallas Stars (18-11-1)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. Over at Defending Big D, Brad Gardner has this preview up from a Stars-perspective.

The Niedermayer Post: In honor of tonight's number retirement ceremony, I wrote quite a bit about Scott Niedermayer, his time as a Devil, and why he's a legend. Please check it out of if you haven't.

A Song for Tonight: I probably should have picked "The Defender" by Manowar, but it's not really all that glorious. Not glorious like "Kingdom Come" at least. Eh, I'll go both ways like #27.

Gameday Info: Unfortunately, we will not have a Andrew Raycroft sighting. Per Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Richard Bachman will get the start. He has been hot, so even if he did just play last night, the Stars would rather go with him instead of Raycroft. I can't say I blame them. As for the Devils, Tom Gulitti reported earlier today that their scratches will be Matt Taormina, Alexander Urbom, and Tim Sestito. Yes, with Travis Zajac returning; Ryan Carter will center the fourth line. Can the Devils play without The Energy Source tonight? Who knows! More seriously, Zajac will center David Clarkson and Mattias Tedenby per this post at Fire & Ice by Gulitti.

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!
