The pre-preseason series that is the Prospect Challenge continues on at the Harborcenter in Buffalo. This afternoon matchup is a divisional game - in that both teams are in the same division.

The Time: 3:30 PM ET

The Broadcast?: Who knows?

The Series Preview: No, there still will not be a game preview. I did write this preview for the whole three-game, prospect-specific series. Please check that out to get caught up on what this is all about and who will be present for New Jersey. Whoever was not in the lineup yesterday may get a shot today. If not, then maybe on Monday morning. (Yes, morning. I still cannot get over that.)

The Penguins Prospects to Know: Here’s the list from the Penguins’ official website. The standouts on paper are forward Jordy Bellerive, 2018 drafted defenseman Calen Addison, and forward Sam Miletic.

The Goal: No injuries and play well. Expect to see this in the next Gamethread too.

The Song of the Day: Is there a more important band to have ever come out of Holmdel, New Jersey? If there is, well, they probably did not give you good advice about pedestrian safety that also makes you want to join a circle pit. From the mighty full length album The Posi-Machine, this is “Cross At the Green (Not In Between).”

The Rules: As usual, keep it clean, respect your fellow Devils fan, and keep it relevant to the game. Go Devils.
