After a brief interruption in the home schedule and days off to practice and to take part in many drills, the Team That Matters returns to the Rock to face another challenging opponent.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (4-2-0) vs. the Nashville Predators (7-2-0; SBN Blog: On the Forecheck)

The Time: 7:00 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 Night: Intensity seems to be a theme given the practices earlier in the week. Heavy, extreme music is definitely intense. And one band that almost always brought it was New Jersey’s own The Dillinger Escape Plan. Twister, violent, and incredibly musical. When they go hard, it’s like taking a combination of hits that still feels like a surprise if you know it is coming. Their first album from 1999, Calculating Infinity, is still fresh. From that monster of an album, this is “Destro’s Secret.”

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is on and you’re getting all kinds of time signatures, screaming, and discordant guitar work into a beautiful mish-mash of heavy music. 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!
