New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers - Gamethread #53

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+2 (MSG if you want Rangers commentary for some strange reason); Radio - 660 AM WFAN

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (30-19-3) at the New York Rangers (33-12-5)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. Please check that out if you haven't yet. Bryan Winters has these keys to the game over at Blueshirt Banter.

A Song for Tonight: This is Fury of Five. They are a hardcore band originally from, I think, Asbury Park. They have certainly made their mark on the scene, as it were. From their second album At War with the World, this is "Takin' Respect." As they say, Jersey will not be disgraced.
Gameday Info: Oh, good grief, Cam Janssen will be in the lineup according to this post by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice. I can (sort of) appreciated that Janssen's amped for this game and it's not like Brad Mills (who has sent down to Albany) has been a difference maker on the fourth line, but is there any reason to believe Janssen will play more than 5 mintues tonight? Well, Ilya Kovalchuk hasn't played 25+ minutes in two games so I guess he should be good to eat the extra minutes when he's eventually double shifted. As for the Rangers, they're erring on the side of beef on defense. While Steve Eminger is available, Stu Bickel will stay in the line up as reported by Andrew Gross in this post and confirmed in this tweet by Gross.

As usual, you can use the comments in this post to discuss tonight'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!
