Gameday Info: James Mirtle of the Globe & Mail (and formerly of From the Rink here at SBN) confirmed that goaltender James Reimer will start in net for the Maple Leafs tonight and Saturday on Twitter. According to this post by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, Zach Parise did skate this morning but it is unclear whether he'll play tonight. Also from Gulitti, Colin White will not play even though he did skate this morning with Parise, Johan Hedberg (he will not play tonight, Martin Brodeur is the Devils' starter), and Vladimir Zharkov (I hope he does, but I'm not holding my breath).

A Song for Tonight: For absolutely no reason in particular other than to slam a song into your heads for the next few days, here's one of the funkiest tracks ever recorded: "The Grunt" by the J.B.'s.
