New, comments

The Time: 7:00PM EDT

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

The Game: The New Jersey Devils (45-28-6) vs. the New York Islanders(33-35-11)

The Previews: John has his preview of the game here, while Dominik has a preview of sorts over at Lighthouse Hockey.

Pre-Game Music: Normally it's hardcore music- however, seeing as the opponent is New York based (well, sort of), I figured I bust out some Beastie Boys. Today's song is Intergalactic

Playoff Picture: The Panthers are hosting the Jets tonight. With a win, they can clinch the 3rd seed. If not, they remain 3 points ahead of the Capitals for 3rd place. The Senators are hosting the Hurricanes tonight, which is a game the Sens should be able to win- however, if the Sens lose, clinching the 6th spot will be much easier. Feel free to discuss those games in this separate thread.

Gameday Info: Johan Hedberg and Al Montoya will be your starters for tonight's game. Defenseman Matt Donovan has been recalled by the Islanders for tonight's game due to injuries. David Clarkson will not play today per TG due to a lower body injury- Cam Janssen takes his place in the lineup. Adam Larsson will not play either, which means Peter Harrold is in again.

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 (Reminder: It's John tweeting, not me). Go Devils!
