The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Chicago Blackhawks (SBN Blog: Second City Hockey)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+, NHL Network, NBCSCH+; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network.

The Song for the Evening: Tonight is Star Wars Night. Star Wars was released in 1977. The charting songs from that year hit a wide range of genres. Disco was still going but smooth music was also making a claim for popularity. Why go out to space when you can have A Place in the Sun? Why get on a spaceship when you can take a special cruise, such as a Pablo Cruise? I’m kidding, you cannot take a Pablo Cruise, but they can hear a sweet song by them that went as high as #6 on the pop charts in 1977: “Whatcha Gonna Do.”

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of whether or not you are cosplaying for Star Wars at the Rock tonight. 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!
