New Jersey Devils vs. San Jose Sharks: Gamethread #5

This is the gamethread for today's game between the New Jersey Devils and the San Jose Sharks. This is a post where users can discuss what happens before, during, and after the game until the recap is up.

Tonight, there is actual NHL hockey that counts in the state of New Jersey.

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (3-1-0) vs. the San Jose Sharks (3-0-1; SBN Blog: Fear The Fin)

The Game Previews: My preview from this morning is here. For the opposition's perspective, The Neutral has this preview at Fear the Fin.

The Song for Tonight: As tonight's game is in New Jersey, here's a track by a New Jersey band. This is "The Wolf" by The Banner from the 2008 release, Frailty. Give it about 70 seconds; it'll get heavy eventually.

Gameday Info: Yesterday, Tom Gulitti tweeted the Devils won't have a morning skate so we won't know whether Damien Brunner is playing in place of Martin Havlat tonight. The Sharks did skate this morning. David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports that Antti Niemi will start in net; John Scott will sit for rookie Eriah Hayes; and Scott Hannan will play in place of Jason Demers. Regarding that last bit, expect to see him a lot in his own end based on his early season so far.

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, no information how to get streams, etc.). Please refrain from extra large 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.
