Welcome back to Newark, where the next three games will be held. This game is against one of the few teams in the league with a decidedly better record than the team we all love.
The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (9-3-1) vs. the St. Louis Blues (11-3-1; SBN Blog: St. Louis Game Time)
The Time: 7:00 PM ET
The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ 2; Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network
The Theme for Tonight: The greater St. Louis area and the state of Missouri has a deep history in pro wrestling. From the groundbreaking Wrestling at the Chase TV show to promoter Sam Muchnick, who was one of the founders of the National Wrestling Alliance to legendary grapplers like Nick Bockwinkel, Ox Baker, “Classy” Freddie Blassie, and current star Randy Orton (well, he’s billed from there). But arguably one of the best in the history of this business was the Missouri-born Harley Race. He was a tough customer who was a star from the mid-1960s through to the 1990s. Whether it was in the AWA, the NWA, WWF, WCW, or All Japan Pro Wrestling, Race made his mark. While most of his tenure was before every wrestler had a theme associated with him, Race did have two. His WWF theme, “The Great Gate of Kiev” is more commonly associated with Jerry “The King” Lawler. So I give you his All Japan theme, the surprisingly funky “Galaxy Express.”
The Rules: The rules remain the rules. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams, no streams), 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. Go Devils!
