New Jersey Devils at Philadelphia Flyers: Preseason Gamethread #5

The New Jersey Devils will play their final road preseason game tonight in Philadelphia as they play the Flyers. This is a gamethread where ILWT members can discuss the game before, during, and after it happens until the recap is up.

The last road game of the preseason and the second of a back-to-back set. Thursday night may be the dress rehearsal so whoever's in that's on the fringe better make a good impression tonight.

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: This game will be on TV! It'll be on the NHL Network but blacked out locally. There's good news. MSG Plus will air CSN's feed of the game in the central/north New Jersey area! Comcast Sports Network will have it for those in south New Jersey and Philly.

The Previews: Karen wrote a preview for this game this morning right here. Over on the other side, Travis Hughes has this preview over at Broad Street Hockey.

The Song for Tonight: The signing of Brunner makes me want to use some Coroner. This is "Pale Sister" from their 1991 album Mental Vortex.

Gamenight Info: Damien Brunner is officially a New Jersey Devil for two years for a total of $5 million. There will be a separate post on this news. Also: Tom Gulitti figured out who could be available for the Devils tonight at Fire & Ice. Cory Schneider will start the game and he's expected to play the whole game. As for the opposition, some guy named Claude Giroux will make his first preseason appearance tonight according to the Flyers' official website.

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 illegal streams, don't ask for/tell about one). Please refrain large pictures and .gifs as well so the thread doesn't get too bogged down. This will be open until a recap of this game is up. Go Devils!
