Tonight, the Calgary Flames come to Newark to wrap up their two games with the New Jersey Devils this season. Will the Devils bounce back after a loss in Ottawa? We’ll see. This gamethread is a place where users can discuss the game as it happens.

A part of me just hopes that tonight there won’t be a dirty elbow, jumping blindside hit, or a knee to the back of the head against a Devil.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. Calgary Flames (SBN Blog: Matchsticks & Gasoline)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

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

The Cover Song for Tonight: Every once in a while, a cover is so legendary, they usurp the original. Bob Dylan wrote “All Along the Watchtower.” Jimi Hendrix did a version of it so well, even Dylan’s later performances (of which there are an incredibly amount) of the song is closer to Hendrix’s version. It might as well be a Hendrix song; he made it his own. It’s still a popular cover song in rock. One of the many, many versions I want to point in your direction is this live cover from Lenny Kravitz with Eric Clapton on lead guitar from 1999. I don’t know why or what show it is and I don’t care because this is really, really good stuff.

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!
