New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers: Gamethread #13

New, comments

The New Jersey Devils are hosting the Second Rate Rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers; hoping to extend a winning streak to three games. This post is a gamethread for fans to discuss the game as it happens until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+2; Radio - 660 AM / 101.9 FM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (3-5-4) vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (3-8-0; SBN Blog: Broad Street Hockey)

The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. Kurt R of Broad Street Hockey has this preview over there.

A Song for Tonight: Well, here is a catchy tune!

Game Night Info: Bad news for the Devils: Travis Zajac will not play tonight. He's "day to day" with his ankle injury as reported earlier today by Tom Gulitti. Jacob Josefson will be in the lineup right in Zajac's spot so he'll center Damien Brunner and Dainius Zubrus to start the game. For the Flyers, Marc Narducci reported at Philly.com at Tye McGinn was called up and should play tonight. On Twitter, Narducci says we should expect Steve Mason to start. Lastly and arguably the most strange of news, Anthony SanFilippo of the Flyers organization stated on Twitter that Andrej Meszaros and Hal Gill (who's still in the league, apparently) are in on defense in place of Erik Gustafsson and Luke Schenn. Three words, Devils: attack, attack, attack.

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.

Go Devils!
