The Song for Tonight: "The Easy Way" by Swamp Thing. What a week...first the Penguins and now the Chicago Blackhawks? Surely there must be an easier way to win some games in the NHL these days.
Gameday Info: Mattias Tedenby has been placed on non-roster waivers and Ryan Carter has been activated from the IR. Patrik Elias will not play tonight as he is still sore and considered day to day. Check in with Tom Gulitti for this and all the latest NJ Devils news.
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. Go Devils.
