New Jersey Devils vs. Boston Bruins - Gamethread #82

The Time: 3:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+(HD); Radio - 1130 AM WBBR

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (37-39-5) vs. the Boston Bruins (46-24-11)

The Previews: My guess-filled preview from this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, please check out this preview at Stanley Cup of Chowder.

Gameday Info: Rich Chere reported earlier this morning on Twitter that Adam Henrique will play today and Alexander Urbom may also get in the lineup as well. More recently, Tom Gulitti tweeted that Johan Hedberg will get the start today; and that David Steckel and Jay Leach will sit for Henrique and Urbom, respectively. As for Boston, Joe Haggerty of CSN-NE tweeted last night that Zdeno Chara and Mark Recchi will sit this one and Tuukka Rask will be in net. We shall see how all of this holds up at gametime. One last note: don't be surprised if you see some of blue in the stands. Gulitti estimated 1,600 to 2,000 Quebec Nordiques will be at at the game and learned that they will support New Jersey. I guess they want to show they have a fan base for a team; though wouldn't it be more practical for them to go to a rich guy's house and convince them to become a potential owner for a Quebec City franchise? I don't know.

Oh, and Jacques Lemaire will make a decision on whether he'll coach the 2011-12 season after this game per Gulitti.

Two Songs for Today: By the seminal No Means No, this is "Graveyard Shift" off their album One. I feel it's somewhat appropriate for today, but I can't put a finger on as to why. If you don't like it, then try "Chartered Trips" by Hüsker Dü from their seminal album Zen Arcade. There's no returning from this trip away.

Want to Discuss Other Games?: Don't do it here. This is the Gamethread for today's Devils-Bruins game. Not sure what other games you want to talk about at this time; but you can talk about other games in the NHL or in other leagues in the comments here in this FanShot.

Please use this Gamethread to discuss what's going on in tonight's game between the Bruins and the Devils. 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. Let's enjoy the end to a trying season. Go Devils!
