The Series: The New Jersey Devils at the New York Rangers
The Previews: My series preview is right here and my preview for this specific game is right here. For the opposition's perspective, please visit Blueshirt Banter.
A Song for Tonight: Hailing from Astoria, Leeway was notable among many NY bands for their excellent mix of thrash metal and hardcore - something we call crossover thrash. This is a classic example of their sound: from the 1989 album Born to Expire: "Enforcer."
Gameday Info: Per Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, the Devils are expected to use the same lineup from Game 5 against Philadelphia. Over at Rangers Rants, Andrew Gross reported that the Rangers are also expected to use the same lineup from their last game. Also: Gross notes that John Tortorella - in his usual manner - doesn't believe that winning two straight series in seven games will be an issue.
The Reminder: I know everyone's going to be a bit on edge for this one - myself included. Feelings and emotions will be running high. Still, remember that I and the other users commenting aren't the ones playing this game. There's no need to get salty among ourselves or against any trolls from other places. Seriously, don't feed any trolls and don't troll Blueshirt Banter - sanctions there can be brought over here. To quote Bill S. Preston, Esq., be excellent to each other.
The Band is Awesome: Queen is an awesome band. Here's an example of said awesomeness. That also reminds me. Please don't call Henrik Lundqvist "Queen," or some variation thereof. At it's core a sexist comment by way of stating that being a female is inferior. Moreover, the band is more awesome than Lundqvist ever will be. Such statements won't be tolerated from here on out, so don't be surprised if you get warned for it. Thanks!
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 (SPECIAL PLAYOFF RULE: Anything 2012 NHL playoff related is OK.), and keep them legal (For example: nothing is allowed about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). I will provide commentary here and as well as on Twitter with @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
