You say this matchup seems familiar? Get used to it. The New Jersey Devils do not have a lot of back-to-back sets of games as they have had in past seasons. But they will be facing the same opponents in consecutive games throughout the season. At least this game will be in the afternoon. That is different.
The Time: 1:00 PM ET
The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+, NESN, NHL Network, Sportsnet; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (Radio.com)
The Song for the Afternoon: More Hatebreed? More Hatebreed. What can you add to a band known for its muscular approach to metallic hardcore and (sometimes) thoughtful lyrics? How about thrash metal legend Kerry King of Slayer? King threw in some sick solos on “Final Prayer” from their 2002 album Perseverance.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the growing familiarity with this and future opponents. 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!
