In Newark, New Jersey, the home team can turn this series on its head! Once again, the Rock will not get hyped, they will stay hyped.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (1) at the Tampa Bay Lightning (2, SBN Blog: Raw Charge)

The Time: 7:30 PM ET

The Broadcast: Local TV - MSG & MSG+; National TV - GOLF, SN, TVAS2, SN; Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network

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

The Song for Tonight: Let’s stick with Individual Thought Patterns by Death. The third track, “Jealousy” has it all from strong lyrics to an awesome dual-guitar solo to a great metal beat. As the song says, “Behind the eyes is a place on one will be able to touch, containing thoughts that cannot be taken away or replaced.” Whose eyes? Anyone’s. Taylor Hall’s. Brian Boyle’s. Even Victor Hedman, who thinks it is OK to spear rookies in the crotch.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as the Devils are still in the playoffs and can tie up the series tonight. 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!
