Preseason Gamethreads #1 & 2: New Jersey Devils vs. New York & at Montreal

Preseason begins for the New Jersey Devils with two games on the same night. The training camp roster is split into two lineups with one playing Our Hated Rivals at the Rock and the other playing in Montreal. This gamethread is for Devils fans to discuss either game as it happens.

Welcome back to New Jersey Devils exhibition hockey! It’s been a good week since the Prospect Challenge anyway. Of course, tonight will have some veterans playing. Tonight begins the preseason for New Jersey and it begins with a split squad. The training camp lineup will be split up as the Devils will play in two separate places on this evening.

The Matchups: The New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Rangers (SBN Blog: Blueshirt Banter) and The New Jersey Devils at the Montreal Canadiens (SBN Blog: Habs Eyes on the Prize)

The Times: 7:00 PM ET in New Jersey, 7:30 PM ET in Montreal

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG, MSG+ for the Devils-Rangers game; TSN2 for the Devils-Montreal game

The Songs for the Night: Two games. Two songs.

For the Devils-Rangers game, get hyped up with one of the first big hardcore bands to come out of New Jersey. From their first album, The Wacky Hi-jinks of..., this is Adrenalin O.D. and the song is “A.O.D. vs. Godzilla.”

For the Devils-Montreal game, let’s go in a different direction. Let’s go indie. Let’s get noisy. Let’s have an instrumental that is not frantic but evokes emotion. From the wonderfully titled album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, this is “White Noise” by Mogwai.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when there is more than one game. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams), and all about the games itself. Just as importantly, let’s respect each other. There’s no need for drama or being unwelcoming of your fellow Devils fan. This is a gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils! Twice!
