The Time: 3:00 PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (36-23-5) at the New York Islanders (27-29-9)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition hook up, Lighthouse Hockey is the place you need to look up.

A Song for Today: You know, it's time to give the funk it's due. Instead of using it when the Devils aren't playing well, I'm going to use it until the Devils lose after the Washington game. Here's the full 15+ minute version of (Not Just) Knee Deep by Funkadelic from the 1979 album Uncle Jam Wants You.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported on Fire & Ice about an hour ago that Alexei Ponikarovsky's MRI came back negative. That's good. He's still not playing today. That's not so good. Peter DeBoer will decide to go with seven defensemen or twelve forwards, or in other words, deciding between playing Matt Taormina or Cam Janssen. I shouldn't have to tell you what would be the better choice.

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 here as well as a tweet here and there at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
