New Jersey Devils vs. Buffalo Sabres - Gamethread #48

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (26-19-2) vs. the Buffalo Sabres (19-24-5)

The Previews: John has a preview up for tonight's game, which can be found here. While Die By the Blade doesn't have a preview up, they have a solid write up about the team's struggles.

A Song For Tonight: The opposition hails from Buffalo. I'm not too familiar with the Buffalo Metal scene, but a very notable band hails from nearby St. Catharines- Alexisonfire. Tonight's song, Waterwings (And Other Poolside Fashion Faux Pas) comes from their best album, their self-titled first Album.

Gameday Info: Devils Defenseman Peter Harrold is going to make his debut tonight as the 4th line winger (seriously, it beats Janssen there) and will wear #10. The Lines and pairings should be the same outside of that. As for the Sabres, Defenseman Christian Erhoff will return to the lineup tonight per John Vogl of Sabres' Edge. Additionally, Robyn Regehr will return tonight as well. Ryan Miller looks like he will be the starting goalie tonight for the Sabres.

Talking Red: In case you missed it, this week's episode features former Devil Bobby Holik talking about several different issues with the Devils, such as Zach Parise's contract as well as Ilya Kovalchuk and Jacques Lemaire.
