The Series Preview: I wrote a MASSIVE series preview, so go check that out.

The Song for Tonight: The first track off of Individual Thought Patterns by Death is a stormer. This is “Overactive Imagination.” Be careful to not let one enslave your empty shell.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as the Devils are still in the playoffs and down two goals. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams, no streams at all), 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!
