Gamethread #35: New Jersey Devils at Detroit Red Wings

Before the New Jersey Devils can get on with celebrating Christmas, they must play the Detroit Red Wings first. This gamethread is a place where Devils fans can discuss tonight's game as it happens.

The Time: 7:30 PM EST

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (16-13-5) vs. the Detroit Red Wings (17-9-7; SBN Blog: Winging it in Motown)

A Song for Tonight: Way back in the day, Detroit outputted a band that would be incredibly influential in the punk and early hardcore scenes. That band is Negative Approach. Even to this day, singer John Brannon's delivery is simply perfect for the genre - raw, angry, and impactful. Their 1983 album Tied Down is one to track down if you're into the genre. The only song on the album I can link to on this site is one of their slower numbers, "Evacuate."

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!
