The Time: 7:00 PM ET

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

The Song for the Night: The NHL wants this to be a LOUD season. I abide. Since this is the first game, we all want the Devils to succeed for the first time in 2019-20. To that end, it is appropriate to jam out to the first track from the album What We Know by The First Step: “Time to Understand.” For a song under two minutes, it has a lot going for it.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even with the dawn of a new season. 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!
