Gamethread #59: New Jersey Devils vs. New York Islanders

The New Jersey Devils will face the New York Islanders for the last time this regular season. This gamethread is a place where Devils fans can discuss the game as it happens until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ ; Radio - 880 AM WCBS

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (29-22-7) at the New York Islanders (30-19-7; SBN Blog: Lighthouse Hockey)

A Song for Today: Did you know Billy Joel (the Bon Jovi of Long Island) was in a metal band? He was. He and Jon Small made up Attila, a psychedelic heavy metal band in 1969 to 1970. So this isn't anything like modern metal or the classic metal sound of the 1980s or the late 1970s. Small did the drumming, Joel did everything else on organ apparently. It's certainly...something. From their only release in 1970, this is the first track, "Wonder Woman." Dig that wah-wah sound and a young Joel trying to scream.

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 keep the .GIFs away (they slow things down), and let's focus on the game. Thank you for reading and commenting. Go Devils!
