New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers - Gamethread #47

The Time: 1:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (26-18-2) vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (27-14-4)

The Previews: My preview from way earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, Broad Street Hockey should have something up by now.

A Song for Today: Folly was a hardcore band with some ska parts and a whole lot of screaming. This track was a jam back in the early part of the last decade. You may have even heard it on WSOU (and probably still do from time to time). From their first full release Insanity Later, this is "Please Don't Shoot the Piano Player, He's Doing the Best He Can." It pretty much sums up Folly's sound in my opinion.

Gameday Info: Rich Chere reported this morning that Mattias Tedenby was sent down to Albany and Alexei Ponikarovsky will wear #12 on the Devils. I suppose Nick Palmieri's not coming back anytime soon. It's still unclear whether Ponikarovsky will be in the lineup today, though. If not, expect Steve Zalewski at left wing on the third line. According this morning's article from Sam Cardici at, the Flyers will keep Claude Giroux, Jaromir Jagr, and Scott Hartnell together; Zac Rinaldo is expected to return to action, and Ilya Bryzgalov will start for the Flyers.

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. Please remember the rules at all times. Namely: keep your comments clean, keep them on topic, and keep them legal (read: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). Go Devils!
