New Jersey Devils vs. Philadelphia Flyers: Gamethread #14

New, comments

The New Jersey Devils will take on the Second Rate Rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers tonight. This post is a place where members can discuss the game as it happens in the comments section.

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (8-2-3) vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (6-7-1; SBN Blog: Broad Street Hockey)

The Game Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition point of view, please check out Travis Hughes' preview at Broad Street Hockey.

The Song for Tonight: Shattered Realm goes hard and so does this track from Broken Ties...Spoken Lies: "This World Is Mine!" Among all else, dig that snare drum.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported earlier today that Alexei Ponikarovsky is expected to start tonight's game alongside with Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk. Stefan Matteau will be a healthy scratch. According to this report by March Narducci at the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sean Couturier feels better after having the flu so he very well could play tonight.

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 do not post super-big pictures or .GIFs so the gamethread can keep moving for everyone. If you must use pictures, please put a title in the comment.

I will provide occasional thoughts and a bit more through @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
