New Jersey Devils vs Tampa Bay Lightning: Gamethread 11

The Devils will try to make it two in a row for the first time this season as they host the surging Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Time: 7:30 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV - NBC Sports; Radio - 660 AM WFAN (101.9 FM)

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs the Tampa Bay Lightning

The Game Previews: John wrote a preview and it's available right here. For the opposition's point of view, check out Raw Charge.

The Song for Tonight: Live - Lightning Crashes. Lightning crashes....a Stamkos cries.

Gameday Info: No changes on the Devils side from what John discussed this morning. The team will ice the exact same lineup that played in Boston on Saturday night. Looking for a big game from Martin Brodeur and the defense tonight. Namely, Andy Greene and Mark Fayne, who will probably be trying to stop Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis. Moar Eric Gelinas pleeze. Anton Volchenkov will have to chip in to slow down the dynamic TB power play as well. Even better, maybe the Devils can just avoid going shorthanded Up front, I thought Adam Henrique had his best game of the season on Saturday, and he needs to play with the same fire today. Damien Brunner finally was motoring around again on Saturday night like the Brunner we saw the first few games of the year. Jaromir Jagr needs to continue Jagr'ing.

For the Lightning, Ben Bishop will be in net. The mammoth goaltender has been very good so far this season and big part of the team's early season success. No indication yet as to the lines or defense pairings for Tampa.

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 perhaps here and definitely 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!
