Tonight is Pride Night, which was announced in December. It is also the first home game of the 2020 part of the season. It is also against a really talented opponent, featuring the terrifyingly terrific Nathan MacKinnon.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Colorado Avalanche (SBN Blog: Mile High Hockey)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG, ALT2; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network

The Song for the Evening: August Burns Red was nominated for a Grammy in 2016 for the single “Identity” from Found in Far Away Places for Best Metal Performance. It is one of the best songs on the album. Alas, they did not win. It should have given the other nominees. Oh well. Check it out and dig that surf guitar solo about 1:45 into it.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the fact that this is the first home game of 2020 for the Devils. 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!
