New Jersey Devils at Philadelphia Flyers - Gamethread #12

The Time: 7:30 PM EDT

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

The Series: The New Jersey Devils (3) at the Philadelphia Flyers (1)

The Previews: Matt E. did the preview for this game at this post; please check it out if you haven't done so already. For the opposition's point of view, please check out Travis Hughes' recap at Broad Street Hockey.

The Song for Tonight: The first track from Running Wild's 1989 release Death or Glory: "Riding the Storm." As Rock'n Rolf sings, "We'll stay our course whatever will come." For the Devils, that means continue to swarm it up.

Gameday Info: According to this post by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, the Devils will make one change to their lineup: Ryan Carter will return on the fourth line. Tim Sestito will be scratched. Based on this article at by Sam Cardici, the Flyers may get Andrej Meszaros back on defense. If he does return, then it's expected that Andreas Lilja will be scratched. Playing in place of the suspended of Claude Giroux will be Zac Rinaldo. Reminder for the Devils: play from whistle-to-whistle. Don't respond to the Flyers' goading, especially from a guy like Rinaldo. It's not worth it.

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 and John might tweet here and there at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
