Gamethread #6: New Jersey Devils vs New York Islanders

New, comments

This is the sixth gamethread of the New Jersey Devils 2013 season, in which the Devils are visited by the Islanders. Users can discuss the game as it happens here.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast Info: TV- MSG+, Radio- WFAN 660 AM

The Matchup: New Jersey Devils (3-0-2) vs the Boston Bruins (3-2-1)

Game Previews: John has his preview up here, while Dominik has a preview from the Islanders perspective over at Lighthouse Hockey

Gameday Information: The Devils aren't going to have Mark Fayne for tonight's game, as he's currently dealing with an arm injury. Adam Larsson will step in for him. Additionally, Adam Henrique will make his return to the lineup tonight after missing the first 5 games with a thumb injury, replacing Stefan Matteau. The Isles will be without Colin MacDonald due to suspension, which means Devils Legend Eric Boulton will step in for the Isles, meaning the Devils will have easy scoring opportunities for maybe about 4 minutes of the game.

A Song For Tonight: I'm actually not going to be around tonight because I've had other plans (for like a month)- namely I'm going to a concert. While these guys don't really have much relevance to the opponent (I really can't think of any), I am seeing these guys live and they're amazing live (from what I've heard at least). Today's song is Prequel to the Sequel by Between the Buried and Me

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).

Because i'm going to be at a concert all night, I won't be providing commentary here. However, John will be tweeting live from the rock from@inlouwetrust.

Go Devils.
