Two teams with improbable seasons. This is the second time New York’s More Tolerable Team will be at The Rock this season.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Islanders (SBN Blog: Lighthouse Hockey)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ (MSG for the Isles’ feed); Digital Audio - The “Devils Hockey Network.” A.K.A. Go to or for an audio feed.

The Song for the Night: The Talking Heads were a landmark band. They certainly had a style all of their own. They covered “Take Me to the River,” on their 1978 album More Songs About Buildings and Food. The song was originally by Al Green and Mabon “Teenie” Hodges, but this was a hit for the Talking Heads due to their version of it.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when you’re wondering why I didn’t link to the Stop Making Sense version of the song. It is what it is. 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!
