New Jersey Devils vs. Florida Panthers: Gamethread #46

The New Jersey Devils will host the Florida Panthers tonight before a four game roadtrip. Users are free to discuss tonight's game in this post until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (18-18-9) vs. the Florida Panthers (17-21-6; SBN Blog: Litter Box Cats)

The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. Over at Litter Box Cats, Ryan Meier has this preview.

A Song for Tonight: "Privacy and intimacy as we know it will be a memory among many to be passed down to those who never knew." - This was rather prescient in 1995. It's "1,000 Eyes" by Death from the seminal album Symbolic.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti is back at Fire & Ice and he reported earlier today that there will be no lineup changes for the Devils tonight. There will be seven defensemen, eleven forwards, and Cory Schneider; just as they were from the win against Dallas on Thursday night. As for the opposition, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel tweeted that forward Shawn Matthias is out, forward Drew Shore is in, and Tim Thomas will start for Florida.

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. Above all else, go Devils.
