New, comments

This is the gamethread for today's game between the New Jersey Devils and the Buffalo Sabres. This is a post where users can discuss what happens before, during, and after the game until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV- MSG ; Radio - WCBS 880 AM

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (10-11-5) vs. The Buffalo Sabres (6-20-1; SBN Blog: Die by the Blade.)

The Game Previews: Karen's preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, feel free to read Andy Boron's post at Die by the Blade.

The Song for Tonight: "Coat of Many Colors" by Dolly Parton. In the spirit of giving and good will towards all this song may not spark any thunderous hip checks along the boards but it will no doubt warm your heart and motivate you to find a new or gently used coat to donate to a great cause. (See Coat Drive reminder below)

Gameday Info: Devils Stephen Gionta (ankle) remains on IR. Defensemen Adam Larsson (lower body) is questionable. Defenseman Bryce Salvador (foot), and forward Ryane Clowe (concussion) are doubtful. Buffalo Sabres forward Cody McCormick may return to the lineup this eve from an undisclosed injury.

The Reminder of Rules: This is a place where you can comment about this game before, during, and after it's played before 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 .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone. If you do post pictures make sure to post a title in the comment. Go Devils.

Coat Drive Reminder: Today the NJ Devils will host their annual coat drive benefitting Jersey Cares. More information can be found here.
