The Series Preview: I wrote a MASSIVE series preview, so go check that out.
The Song for Tonight: Get ready for a first round of DEATH. From my favorite Death album, Symbolic, this is “1,000 Eyes.” A remarkably relevant song that came out in 1995.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as the Devils are in the playoffs. 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!
