The Cover Song for Tonight: Watching Elias play was a joy. An absolute joy as he could do it all and do it well in all aspects of the game. In this crazy fast game called hockey, Elias had the class and the presence of mind to display control when needed. He always “Got the Time.” To that end, here’s Anthrax owning the original from Joe Jackson by making it thrashier and bassier.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules on Elias Night. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams, no streams), and all about the game itself. Other scores are OK, but let’s make sure the comments here are primarily about the Devils and this game. Also, let’s respect each other, there’s no need for drama or unwelcome nature of any sort. This is a gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
