New Jersey Devils vs New York Rangers - Gamethread #18

The Time: 8:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - NBC SN, CBC, RDS; Radio - 1130 AM WBBR

The Series: The New Jersey Devils (3) vs. the New York Rangers (2)

The Previews: Matt E. did the preview for this game, please check it out here if you haven't. For an opposition's point of view, Joe Fortunato has a clear message in his preview at Blueshirt Banter - "Do or die."

The Pre-Game Video: Here's the awesome pre-game video the Devils have been using before playoff games at the Rock. Watch it and get pumped for this one.
The Song for Tonight: Back to the Running Wild. Like against Philadelphia, the Devils have pushed their opponents to the brink. They will fight back. The Devils will be "Riding the Storm" once again. Hopefully, they come out of it with glory.

Gameday Info: There are no lineup changes for the Devils; Tom Gulitti confirmed that this morning at Fire & Ice. The Rangers may make one change. Andrew Gross of Rangers Rants believes that Steve Eminger will be in the lineup in place of Stu Bickel. We shall see.

The Reminder: I know everyone's going to be a bit on edge for this series - 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 of something. Please don't call Henrik Lundqvist "Queen," or some variation thereof. At its core it is 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!

One Additional Note: I humbly request that people don't post super-large images and .GIFs. There's going to be a lot of comments tonight. So let's keep the images to a minimum so the post can run smoothly for everyone.

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 (For example: nothing is allowed about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). I will provide the commentary here as well on Twitter with @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
