New Jersey Devils vs. Tampa Bay Lightning - Gamethread #61

The Time: 1:00 PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (35-21-4) vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning (27-28-6)

The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. Check out Raw Charge for something game-related by the time this goes up.

A Song for Today: A little over a decade ago, New Brunswick-based Thursday started to hit it big with their second album Full Collapse. Their brand of post-hardcore/emo really struck a nerve at the time. This song from that album remains one of their more popular tracks: "Understanding in a Car Crash."

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti just tweeted a little over an hour ago that Adam Larsson will play and Martin Brodeur will get the start. Marek Zidlicky will be wearing #2 with the Devils, also confirmed by Gulitti. Matt Taormina and Eric Boulton will be scratched per this tweet by Gulitti. As for the Lightning, CAustin's FanShot at Raw Charge highlights two moves by the team. Tampa Bay called up defenseman Evan Oberg from Norfolk and that's likely related to Victor Hedman leaving the Pittsburgh game with an upper body injury.

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 (read: don't snipe at each other - there's a game to discuss), and keep them legal (read: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). I'll provide the occasional comment from my seat in Section 1, Row 16, Seat 5 as well as a tweet here and there at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
