New Jersey Devils vs. Ottawa Senators - Gamethread #50

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV - MSG(HD); Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (16-30-3) at the Ottawa Senators (17-25-8)

The Previews: My preview from this morning is right here. For the Senators' side, here's an open thread at Silver Seven by Peter Raaymakers.

No, the Devils Aren't For Sale: Jeff Vanderbeek made it quite clear in his statement to the media this afternoon, and Tom Gulitti's post sheds more light on the ownership situation. Jeff's still the owner, the team is still in New Jersey, and there will still be a game.

Gameday Info: Alexander Urbom was called up this morning to replace the ill Mark Fayne. Don't get too attached unless you're hoping the Devils don't let his contract slide - which would be stupid. Gulitti also reported that Jacques Lemaire's not sure whether Adam Mair will play tonight. If he does, a forward will sit. As tweeted earlier today by Ian Mendes of Sportsnet, Ottawa will start Robin Lehner at goaltender, Jesse Winchester is out tonight, and the Sens will roll with 7 defensemen. (Hat-tip: Silver Seven)

A Song for Tonight: What else on free ice scraper night and an impending ice storm in New Jersey would be more appropriate than Metallica's Trapped Under Ice?

Please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in this game. Focus should be on the Devils-Senators game this afternoon. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant, and legal. If you want to be negative; fine, but do be rational as nobody needs any nonsense from anyone. Go Devils!
