New Jersey Devils at Carolina Hurricanes - Gamethread #79

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (44-28-6) at the Carolina Hurricanes (31-31-16)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, please check out Canes Country.

The Clinching Situation: The Devils just need one point out of tonight's game to clinch a playoff berth. If they lose in regulation, they can still clinch a spot if Washington and Buffalo both do not win tonight. Let's keep it simple and hope for a result in this game.

A Song For Tonight: How many of you remember IDK? Well, the principal man behind it, Anthony "Red" Paladino and Tom Conti got together with some other scene veterans to form a new group called Ripface Invasion. If you like dig that East Coast hardcore/thrash/punk crossover sound, then you'll like them. This is their first single from their self-titled debut EP: "The Last One on Earth."

Gameday Info: Adam Larsson will not return to the lineup today. As reported in this post by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, the rookie defenseman told the press he'll be a healthy scratch tonight. This means a third game for Peter Harrold and he'll likely start (but not necessarily finish) with Anton Volchenkov. Chip Alexander of the News & Observer reported this afternoon that Brian Boucher will start in net for the Hurricanes and the rest of their lineup will remain the same.

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!
