The Game Previews: John wrote a preview and it's available right here. For the opposition's point of view, check out the preview over at Nucks Misconduct.
The Song for Tonight: TV Casualty by the Misfits. Hopefully those of you watching at home can avoid another TV casualty tonight courtesy of the Devils..
Gameday Info: Most of you are aware by now that there are a few popular lineup changes for the Devils tonight. According to TG, Eric Gelinas has been recalled from Albany and will pair with Adam Larsson, who's 'timeout' is apparently over for now. Someone go grab Adam from the corner of the coat room where he's been standing. The other two defense pairings will be Greene-Fayne, Volchenkov-Zidlicky. Up front, here are the Devils lines. Notably, Patrik Elias is back in the lineup after recently being poisoned with food. Loktionov will skate on the top line with Elias and Jagr. Hopefully this spurs Andrei to get his game going a little bit.
The Nucks Misconduct preview had some projected lines for today. In case you didn't click on the link earlier, do it now if you want to see a possible lineup for tonight. According to Brad Ziemer at the Vancouver Sun, Yann Suave has been recalled but will not play. In a very Tortarella-y move, Vancouver only iced 11 forwards the other day and rode their top lines pretty hard. Let's see if they do that again tonight.
The Reminder of Rules: This is a place where you can (and should) comment about this game before, during, and after it's played, until the recap is up. This is a place where we primarily discuss the Devils game. An odd mention of other NHL games is OK, but it shouldn't dominate discussion. All comments will be clean, respectful of each other, relevant to the game, and legal (read: no streams). Please refrain from super-big pictures and/or .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone. If you're going to include a some sort of picture in your comment, please add a title so anyone who wishes to can collapse it.
John will provide commentary here and through @InLouWeTrust throughout the game. I'll be watching from my perch up in 212, and I'll probably pop in on here or twitter, Rock internet connection willing.
Salute: Give me a D! Give me an E! Give me an V! Give me an I! Give me an L! Give me an S!
