The Most Challenging Road Trip begins against the hottest teams in hockey (ten straight wins) and our favorite team needing points. Great. Just great.
The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Nashville Predators (SBN Blog: On the Forecheck)
The Time: 8:00 PM ET
The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network
The Song for Tonight: This road trip will be a massive challenge. To that end, trying to figure out how the fellows in Irish band Adebisi Shank came up with the sounds that they came up for their three albums. It’s both a chaotic mix of upbeat math-rock but all put together to drive inspiring feelings. I think it’s amazing and so all of the songs for this and the following five gamethreads will be songs by them. From their second album, This Is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank, this is “Genki Shank.”
The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as this nightmarish road trip begins. 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!
