Gamethread #6: New Jersey Devils vs. Florida Panthers

New, comments

The winless New Jersey Devils will try to finally get that first victory at home. They will host the Florida Panthers on a Columbus Day matinee. Why an afternoon game, I could not tell you. This post is a place where those who can see the game can discuss it.

It is Columbus Day and some geniuses in the organization thought it was best to have a 1 PM game on a day most people do not get off. Given that the home team is winless in their first five games, it may be moot that the attendance at the Rock may be low. By the way, this is the first of six straight home games.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Florida Panthers (SBN Blog: Litter Box Cats)

The Time: 1:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network.

The Song for the Day: It is the first of three Kids Days at the Rock this season. Appropriately, the song to pick is “The Kids Still Have a Lot to Say” by Vision, the title track from their 1998 album.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the team is playing at an ill-advised time. 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!
