The Time: 7:00 PM EDT
The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Radio - 660 AM WFAN
The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (18-14-1) vs. the Washington Capitals (17-14-1)
The Previews: My preview from way earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, EmilyB's Caps Clips post for today at Japers' Rink has links to several previews.
A Song for Tonight: God Forbid formed in East Brunswick. They've always straddled the line between thrash metal and metalcore. They're a pretty solid heavy outfit all the same. On a whim, I'm selecting "Better Days," one of the singles off of their 2004 album Gone Forever.
Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported this morning that David Clarkson showed up at this morning's skate and will play tonight. Eric Boulton will be scratched; so your game-night dose of ENERGY will still be on the ice in Newark. Henrik Tallinder will not play tonight, so Alex Urbom will be on defense. Over at Capitals Insider, Tarik El-Bashir reported from the Capitals' morning skate that the only change in their line up will be John Erskine replacing Jeff Schultz on defense.
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 (the two teams in this game), and keep them legal (read: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). Go Devils!
