Gamethread #82: New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

It all ends tonight. The New Jersey Devils will end the 2015-16 regular season tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. This final gamethread for the 2015-16 season is the place for Devils fans to discuss tonight's game until the recap is up.

The Time: 7:00 PM EDT

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (37-36-8) vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs (29-41-11; SBN Blog: Pension Plan Puppets)

Songs for Tonight: Yes, songs as in plural. More than one.

First: For the grunge enthusiasts, I think the Devils' season is summed up by the ending track on Local H's As Good As Dead album: "Manifest Destiny Part 2." "You're onto to something good, but it can't be all that matters." Seems appropriate to me.

Second: For the hardcore fans, I really dig "Still Alive" by Gideon from their 2012 album, Milestone. It features Matt Honeycutt of Kublai Khan, it has a great chorus, and, well, it goes hard.

Third: If you're really into the dark, death-y stuff, then you know all about the New Jersey-based group, The Banner. While the subject matter is often a bit too heavy for a mere hockey game (Maybe Joey Southside would think otherwise? He's a Devils fan, maybe he reads this?), this is an end of the season. This is a sun setting. So from 2014's Greying, this is "Sunset."

Fourth: Lastly, let's have an instrumental. I've probably used a bunch of songs by And So I Watch You From Afar over the past few years. They're great. So that's why. From their 2013 album, this is the title track: "All Hail Bright Futures." That's the thing about futures. They tend to be brighter in a distance. And even if it doesn't go so well, there's always another future.

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 all season long! Go Devils!
