New Jersey Devils at Minnesota Wild - Gamethread #24

The Time: 8:00 PM EDT

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (12-10-1) at the Minnesota Wild (15-7-3)

The Previews: My preview from way earlier this morning is right here. As for the opposition, BReynolds of Hockey Wilderness has this preview up.

Hey, Listen to This Tomorrow: Tom Gulitti will be on TSN 1290 at 2:30 PM CDT (that's 3:30 PM EDT) tomorrow, talking with the people of Illegal Curve. Given that so much of us get our news from Gulitti's blog Fire & Ice, it's likely worth hearing his opinions on matters. Thanks to David for letting me know about this.

Songs for Tonight: I'm going wishy-washy tonight, so you have two options. Option one: here's "Take the Test" by AFI. This is older AFI, so it's pretty good and high-tempo. Option two: here's "Forlani" by NJ-based metalcore band Burnt by the Sun. With the second option you can enjoy the sweet drumming of Dave Witte.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported at Fire & Ice this morning that Dainius Zubrus and Andy Greene say they're expecting to play tonight. Other than that, expect the same lines from Wednesday's game. The Star Tribune's Mike Russo has a full breakdown of tonight's game from the Wild's perspective. In summary: Cal Clutterbuck is out, Casey Wellman will take Clutterbuck's spot in the lineup, and Niklas Backstrom is starting.

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 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: no illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests for one). Go Devils!
