Gamethread #72: New Jersey Devils at Anaheim Ducks

Not only is the second half of a back-to-back in the Most Challenging Road Trip, but the New Jersey Devils, who played yesterday, will play the Anaheim Ducks, who did not play yesterday. As if this game isn’t hard enough. This post is a Gamethread where users can discuss the game as it happens.

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at New Jersey Devils
Ah, the December 18, 2017 game for New Jersey. An eventual triumph for New Jersey. They could a second one over Anaheim.

Tonight is the second half of the nasty back-to-back in the team’s Most Challenging Road Trip. This one is in Orange County.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Anaheim Ducks (SBN Blog: Anaheim Calling)

The Time: 9:00 PM ET

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

The Song for Tonight: Tonight’s game features an Anaheim team who has been home for the week and did not play last night. The Devils played in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon in the middle of a road trip. This one of the two last Devils games where they’re fatigued and their opponent is rested. With that in mind, Adebisi Shank’s song “Mazel Tov” from their third album, This Is the Third Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank, is wholly appropriate.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as this nightmarish road trip continues. 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!
