Today is Hockey Fights Cancer Night at the Prudential Center. Today is also Black Friday. Today is also another day for potential revenge since the opponent shut out our favorite team earlier this month. Today is filled with possibilities and meaning. Start Today.

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

The Time: 4:00 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 Afternoon: Before Thanksgiving, it was about an emerald sword. Today is a good day for another Rhapsody (of Fire). I rolled a 20 so, from Dawn of Victory, this is “Holy Thunderforce.” Actual lyric: “Go back to your abyss, Algalord will not fall, But your heads will soon roll / Test the blade of heroes, fury of the thunder, hit my golden shield” Not that it’s easy to tell with how Fabio Lione sang it. Still, it’s a memorable tune that features a guitar and a cheesy keyboard solo.

Oops: Yes, today is the game. I made a mistake with the calendar. I’ve re-learned how to read one. My bad.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is on and you’re listening a song that makes you ponder as to whether there’s a Black Friday sale for full-plate armor, an aegis shield, a broad sword, and a scroll for magic missile. 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!
