New Jersey Devils at Toronto Maple Leafs: Gamethread #16

New, comments

The New Jersey Devils go back to Canada to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first time this season. This is a gamethread where users can discuss the game as it happens until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:30 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+, TSN; Radio - 660 AM & 101.9 FM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (4-7-4) at the Toronto Maple Leafs (10-5-0; SBN Blog: Pension Plan Puppets)

The Preview: Karen wrote a preview for this game this morning, please go check that out if you have not done so already.

A Song for Tonight: "The Hammer" by Isolation A.D. This is an older version than the one that's on the After Death EP with a different vocalist. It's a hard tune, appropriate given tonight's opponent.

Game Night Info: Tom Gulitti reported earlier today some good news at Fire & Ice. Eric Gelinas did travel with the team and he's off crutches. Gulitti relayed through Twitter that Peter DeBoer said he'll take part in warm-ups and Gelinas will be a gametime decision. If he's not good to go, then Mark Fayne will step in on defense. From the first link, Gulitti confirmed that the starting goaltenders tonight will be Cory Schneider and Jonathan Bernier. Former Devil and current defenseman Mark Fraser will also be in action 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. Go Devils.
