While the first game was in Sweden, today is the first actual road game in 2018-19 for the Team that Matters. They will visit the Second Rate Rivals in what is always a notable game.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (4-1-0) vs. the Philadelphia Flyers (3-4-0; SBN Blog: Broad Street Hockey)

The Time: 1:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Digital Audio - The “Devils Hockey Network.” A.K.A. Go to or for an audio feed.

The Song for the Day: The biggest buzz Philly has going for it is a mascot. A lazy big fat fuzzball of a Youppi! ripoff that presumably wasted a lot of corporate money to come up with that. With respect to that, this is “Ugly in the Morning” by Faith No More from the album King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is on a Sunday afternoon and you’re getting Mike Patton’s most famous group hitting your auditory senses. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams), and all about the games itself. Just as importantly, let’s respect each other. There’s no need for drama or being unwelcoming of your fellow Devils fan. This is a Gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
