The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (SBN Blog: PensBurgh)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ 2; Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network

The Cover Song for Tonight: This video by Body Count is complete. It is a cover of Slayer’s “Reign in Blood” and a part of “Postmortem” by the band in the track “Raining in Blood / Postmortem 2017” which is also available from their latest album Bloodlust. It opens with a helpful explanation from Ice T regarding what started the band and who in metal influences him. It shows the players doing their thing. It’s a straight set of covers, but it’s very good. Also: I’m making it a theme for this month - cover songs. Weird covers, direct covers, basically, whatever I think is interesting.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules in 2018. 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!
