The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (3-3-1) vs. the Buffalo Sabres (2-5-0; SBN Blog: Die by the Blade)
A Song for Tonight: Buffalo is a cold place. Cold places can yield some real heavy things. Every Time I Die is one of the heaviest things to ever come out of that city. The first single from their 2012 album Ex-Lives is a very good example of that. Don't roll your eyes at the track name - "Underwater Bimbos from Outer Space" - this song goes hard like a hockey game.
Gameday Info: Linus Ullmark will start for the Sabres as noted in Andy Boron's preview at Die by the Blade. As for the Devils, there will be no lineup changes. Tom Gulitti tweeted that there will be none per John Hynes. This means Eric Gelinas will be one to watch because he's been given a reprieve from the bench; let's see if he plays like he doesn't want to go back.
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. Thank you for reading and commenting. Go Devils!
