Gamethread #26: New Jersey Devils at Buffalo Sabres

December begins in earnest for the New Jersey Devils with a return trip to upstate New York to play the Buffalo Sabres. Last time they were there, the Devils lost by five. Will tonight be any better? Discuss it as it happens in this post.

Welcome to the month of December. Yes, it started yesterday but tonight is the first game of the month. Hopefully, it will end much better than loss by five goals like the last time in Buffalo, New York.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Buffalo Sabres (SBN Blog: Die by the Blade)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+, MSG-B, SN; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network.

The Song for the Evening: Buffalo’s hardest may be Every Time I Die. Whether you lean towards metal, hardcore, punk, or metalcore, ETID is well-respect by fans of those genres and more. It is easy to hear why. They rip and their songs are very good. For example, “All Structures are Unstable” from their 2014 album From Parts Unknown.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the fact that the last game in upstate New York was a blowout loss. 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!
