The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (42-27-6) at the Pittsburgh Penguins (46-22-6)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here; please check it out if you haven't yet. For a Pittsburgh perspective, please visit PensBurgh.

A Song for Tonight: If you want go up against an elite team like Pittsburgh, then you need go hard. For an aural example, you don't have to look further than New Jersey hardcore band Lifeless. They're clearly influenced by the legendary Merauder. To call it heavy would be to call Dainius Zubrus kind of big. This is "Day by Day" from their first release NLFTW (No Love For the World).

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported this afternoon that Anton Volchenkov did skate this morning but he's still questionable to play. If he's not able to, then Matt Taormina will replace him for the night. In addition, Travis Zajac will play tonight - just a reminder. As for the Penguins, Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start tonight. According to the team's official website (warning: auto-play video in the link), Matt Niskanen and Joe Vitale will not play due to injury.

Please 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). I'll provide the occasional comment here as well as a tweet here and there at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
