The New Jersey Devils will look to bookend their week with a second W; they defeated the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday before dropping Tuesday and Thursday contests to the Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Islanders respectively. The Devils also will be off for a week after today’s game, so going into the break with something positive would be encouraging for a struggling Devils team. To be able to achieve this, they must do battle with old friend Adam Henrique and the Anaheim Ducks.

The Song for the Afternoon: Let’s go back once again to an era when the Devils were legitimate Cup threats rather than just hopefuls or rebuilding; this time it’s the year 2003, Jersey has just won their third cup and A Perfect Circle has just released their second album Thirteenth Step. The lead single of that album, “Weak and Powerless” sums up how we feel about the Devils’ team we’re watching compared to the one from 16 years ago. Hopefully we won’t have to feel so weak and powerless much longer.
The Rules: The usual set of rules remains in effect before, during and after the game. Please keep the comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, nothing even related to streams), and about the game itself. Make sure to remain respectful to your fellow posters even if you disagree with them. There’s no need for drama or being unwelcoming of your fellow Devils fans.Thank you for reading. Let’s go Devils!
