The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Islanders (SBN Blog: Lighthouse Hockey)

The Time: 6:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV – MSG & MSG+; Digital Audio – The One Jersey Network

The Pregame Warmup: It’ll feature Patrik Elias’ last lap. So arrive before 5:30 if you can.

The Song for the Night: GTA Vice City introduced a lot of people to many hit singles from the 1980s, like myself. One of my favorites is Laura Branigan’s “Self Control.” Sing along to the ‘Oooooooh’s in it.

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), 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. Additionally, please keep any pictures below 480 x 480 pixels and do not post .GIFs as they may slow down the gamethread for others. Lastly, 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!
