New Jersey Devils at Detroit Red Wings: Gamethread #39

Tonight, the New Jersey Devils close out 2014 with a road game against the Detroit Red Wings. This is a gamethread, where users can comment about the match-up before, during, and after the game until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:30 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (13-18-7) at the Detroit Red Wings (19-9-9; SBN Blog: Winging it in Motown)

The Previews: My preview from this morning is right here. For the opposition's side, J.J. from Kansas has this brief preparatory post.

The Song for Tonight: The game's in Detroit, so it's a good time for some Detroit Techno. This is "Cosmic Cars" by Cybotron, the group of Juan Atkins, 3070, and Jon-5.

The Gameday Info: According to Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, Martin Havlat will sit this one out and it appears Joe Whitney will get another chance instead of Stefan Matteau. There is good news: Jacob Josefson and Michael Ryder are starting to feel better. Over at MLive, Ansar Khan reported that the Red Wings will make one change to their lineup: defenseman Xavier Ouellet will play in place of Brian Lashoff. Jimmy Howard will start for the Red Wings.

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 (640 x 480 max) and NO .GIFs whatsoever to keep the gamethread moving for everyone.

Go Devils.
