Given the last game between these two teams, progress will be made if Our Favorite Team scores even one goal tonight.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Columbus Blue Jackets (SBN Blog: The Cannon)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+ 2; Digital Audio - The “Devils Hockey Network.” A.K.A. Go to or for an audio feed.

The Song for the Evening: Believe it or not, but a band from Westerville, Ohio led to a sea change of sorts in the metalcore genre. After their first single hit, more and more bands added synth elements like they did, they started to yell more like they did, they did their hair and stage moves like they did, and they did so without getting nearly as much hate as they did when the single came out. In retrospect, the single was not bad. I enjoy it. The song is “Stick Stickly,” the term for this sub-genre was crabcore (see 1:16 to 1:19), the album was Someday Came Suddenly, and the band was Attack Attack!

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even though some of you would wished I picked something like “Interlude,” “Bro, Ashley’s Here,” or “What Happens If I Can’t Check My MySpace When We Get There?” instead. 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!
