The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For a Florida perspective, John Beatty has this preview of today's game at Litter Box Cats.
Gameday Info: As tweeted earlier today by Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinal, Kenndal McArdle and Hugh Jessiman have been called up to replace the injured Chris Higgins and Rostislav Olesz. Yes, that Hugh Jessiman. If he plays, it'll be his NHL debut and it will mean that everyone drafted in the first round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft will have played at least one NHL game.
The Devils didn't have a morning skate, as reported by Tom Gulitti, so any news will come right before gametime.
A Song for Tonight: The looming trade deadline plus the general grind of a regular season can make it a difficult time out there tonight. They must get through the pain, both physical and mental. They must "Bite the Pain," the second track off of Death's final full album, The Sound of Perseverance.
Please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in tonight's game between the Panthers and the Devils. As always, please keep your comments clean, relevant (this means "on topic" for those of you who don't know what "relevant" means), and legal. If you want to be negative; fine, but do be rational as nobody needs any nonsense from anyone. Go Devils!
