New Jersey Devils vs. Tampa Bay Lightning: Gamethread #23

The New Jersey Devils are back home, hoping to snap their five game winless streak against the Tampa Bay Lightning. This post is a gamethread where users can, should, and will discuss the game as it happens up until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (10-7-5) vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning (9-12-1)

The Game Previews: Jerry wrote a preview for this game earlier this morning, you should check it out. For the opposition perspective, John Fontana has this preview at Raw Charge. Incidentally, I answered some questions for Carolyn Christians about the Devils over there too.

The Song for Tonight: Florida team? That means it's time for DEATH. From the seminal 1995 release Symbolic, this is "Empty Words."

Gameday Info: Cam Janssen was called up by the Devils today as reported here by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice. Boo. Gulitti later reported that Johan Hedberg will start tonight. I repeat: Boo. The defense will remain as-is and the forwards will be mixed up. Boo. Tampa Bay will start Anders Lindback.

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.

Since I'll be in my usual seat at the Rock, I'll rarely chime in at times here and through @InLouWeTrust on Twitter. Go Devils! Please do something for all 60 minutes for a change!
