The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Rangers (SBN Blog: Blueshirt Banter)
The Game Previews: My preview from earlier today is here, which was mostly guessing anyway. Please visit Blueshirt Banter, which should have something closer to gametime.
The Song for Tonight: For no reason at all, here's "The City" by The Chariot. Long live.
Gameday Info: The Devils cut their roster by four shortly after their morning skate. Scott Clemmensen is not just the backup for tonight but will be the backup to start the season. Tom Gulitti has full roster for both teams in his post at Fire & Ice. Cory Schneider will face Cam Talbot in nets. The only veterans not on the bubble for NJ tonight are Marek Zidlicky and Damien Brunner (he took a puck to the face on Friday). If you're interested in the Rangers' own roster battles, here's what Joe Fortunato thought after Friday's game. All of them are expected to play tonight.
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.
