Welcome to the 2018-19 regular season! The 2017-18 NHL MVP Taylor Hall and the New Jersey Devils will play the 2017-18 NHLPA Most Outstanding Player Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers all the way in Gothenberg, Sweden.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Edmonton Oilers (SBN Blog: Copper & Blue) in Gothenberg, Sweden.

The Time: 1:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; NHL Network

The Song for the Day: I know I should use a melodic-death metal song since that sound is associated with the late ‘90s Gothenberg scene, such as At the Gates. But why be at the gates, anyway? Especially when you can instead go through the gates? Such as:

Through the gates of hell, as we make our way to heaven, through the Nazi lines


(Aside: If you feel especially Swedish, here’s ”Carolus Rex”)

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is in Europe and you’re too busy handling the epic war-themed power metal of Sabaton. 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. (Otherwise the winged hussars may arrive. You don’t want that.) This is a Gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
