The Matchup: New Jersey Devils (1-0-0) vs the Philadelphia Flyers (0-2-0)
Game Previews: John has a game preview up, while you can check out Travis Hughes' preview on Broad Street Hockey
Gameday Information: The Devils will ice the same lineup as they did Saturday vs the Isles. The Flyers will be without Danny Briere (wrist) and Zac Rinaldo (
mediocrity laceration), Tye McGinn will be in for Rinaldo tonight. So no free power plays thanks to stupidity. In other unfortunate news, Kurtis Foster will not play tonight, but Bruno Gervais (who isn't very good either) will take his place. So expect the Flyers power play to be slightly better than they were in their last two games due to Foster not being in.
A Song For Today: I originally wanted to go with another song by this band, but I felt that song is way too cliched and/or overplayed. However, i'll give you one of their better old songs instead. Today's song is Delirium Trigger by Coheed and Cambria.
Again, just remember the rules. No swearing, no personal attacks and try and limit off-topic discussion to a minimum. Also, no [discussion of] illegal streams- while this rule has been around for a long time, it's become a network-wide rule (a lot of the more lenient blogs are enforcing this rule too), so it's actually pretty important not to discuss illegal streams here. Please title your pictures and .gifs so that people can minimize them if they're too large (or slowing down the gamethread).
I'll be throwing down commentary here while John tweets live from the rock from @inlouwetrust.
