Gamethread #16: New Jersey Devils vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

The 2018 Road Trip of Hell is over and it was hell as the New Jersey Devils went 1-6-0. The one win was against tonight’s opponents, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Will the Devils do it again? I hope so! Talk about the game as it happens in this post, which is a Gamethread.

The last time this team won was against this opponent. After being thrashed 3-7, 1-6, and 2-5, winning would feel really good again. If it is even possible at this rate.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (6-8-1) vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins (7-5-3; SBN Blog: PensBurgh)

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: Normally, this is a spot for some Don Cab or Those Who Fear. But given how the team has been, to use the technical term, utter trash on the ice for the better part of the last three weeks or so, I’m going back to the sounds from the winning streak. That’s right: Power metal. They were not always classified as such but Manowar absolutely fits this style. Among their many songs of fantasy and heavy metal, this is one of my favorite and somewhat appropriate since it’s Martin Brodeur Hall of Fame Night. From Kings of Metal, this is “Kingdom Come.” Hail.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is on and you’re wondering not only when your kingdom will come but also when the Devils will not look so terrible on the ice. 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!
