More of this, somehow, please

Welcome to the Stretch Run. 19 games to secure a playoff position. It will not be easy. For starters, the opponents tonight did not play the night before like last time.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network

The Cover Song for Tonight: This is the final game of the month so one last cover song. Here is another one by The Aquabats!. The story for this one that I’ve heard second hand that the band wanted to cover this song in one way, they got frustrated, bought a second-hand acoustic guitar, and performed the song as if it was like a campfire singalong. It works fantastically for this ska-punk legendary tune. An original turn on a classic in that genre of music. From the Take Warning tribute album, this is their cover of Operation Ivy’s “Knowledge.”

All I know is that I don’t know nothing - and that’s fine.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even after the trade deadline. 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!
