Gamethread #42: New Jersey Devils at Buffalo Sabres

The New Jersey Devils four game road trip ends with a stop in upstate New York to face the Buffalo Sabres. The road hasn’t been kind this year; will it be tonight?

Six out of eight is no longer attainable on the current road trip for our New Jersey Devils. While that was the goal, a win against the Buffalo Sabres tonight would do the team some good after a disappointing loss on Sunday. The Devils raced out to a 2-0 lead, but floundered after that in losing to the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2. The road hasn’t been particularly kind to the Devils, but tonight facing a Sabres team without Jack Eichel, the Devils can hopefully manage to get to a .500 record.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG; Digital Audio - The “Devils Hockey Network.” Head over to or for an audio feed.

The Song for the Night: Sticking with the theme of the Devils’ goal song, tonight we go back a bit further in the band’s history, as we go with Great Expectations by The Gaslight Anthem. I do have the greatest expectations for this team (even when things aren’t always the best) and tonight is no exception.

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!
