The Song for the Evening: This could have been a heavy song about something heavy. This could have been something catchier or poppier. This could had a groove. Instead, this has a German man yelling about scooters. From Das Album, this is “20 km/h” by We Butter the Bread with Butter. The Devils have to hit the ground running this season. Why not use an e-roller instead?

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the first regular season game of this season for Our Favorite Team. 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!
