New, comments

The Time: 7:30 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - Versus NBCSN, CBC, RDS; Radio - 1130 AM WBBR

The Series: The New Jersey Devils (1) vs Philadelphia Flyers (1)

The Previews: I wrote a preview earlier this morning; please go check it out if you haven't yet. For the opposition's point of view, Travis Hughes has this preview at Broad Street Hockey.

The Song For Tonight: I can't think of any bands from Philadelphia right now, so i'm just going to stick with good old metalcore that isn't from Philadelphia. Tonight's song is "The Air That I Breathe" by All That Remains

Gameday Info: Peter DeBoer has Ilya Kovalchuk as a game time decision per TG. My guess is that if he's playing, he will receive limited minutes, namely playing on the power play and no penalty kill shifts. Regardless of whether or not Kovy plays tonight, Adam Larsson will play as the 6th defenseman. If Kovalchuk's out, Peter Harrold returns to the 4th line. As for the Flyers, it looks like they're not going to make any lineup changes. The goalies are Martin Brodeur and Ilya Bryzgalov.

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 (pro-tip: don't respond to them). To quote Bill S. Preston, Esq., be excellent to each other.

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 as well as tweets here and there from John at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
