The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (0-3-1) at the New York Rangers (3-2-0; SBN Blog: Blueshirt Banter)
A Song for Today: You know, it just hit me. With all of the #RELENTLESS marketing from the Devils, how come they didn't pick this song as their theme for the season? Gideon's "Survive" demands one to be relentless. Both at the end and before a killer breakdown. It's also a good and heavy track featuring guest vocals from Caleb Shomo of Beartooth. Alas, an opportunity lost.
Gameday Info: Travis Zajac will play, Tuomo Ruutu is out hurt, and Jon Merrill is sick so Eric Gelinas will play after all. Tom Gulitti reported all of that at Fire & Ice.
The Reminder of Rules: The rules remain the rules. Here's a quick reminder. Please keep your comments clean, legal, and all about the game itself. Other scores are OK, but let's make sure the comments here are primarily about the Devils and this game. Also, let's respect each other, there's no need for drama or unwelcome nature of any sort. This is a gamethread, let's focus on the game. And don't impugn one of rock's greatest bands by comparing them to the Rangers' starting goaltender. Thank you for reading and commenting. Go Devils!
