Preseason Gamethread #3: New Jersey Devils at New York Islanders in Bridgeport, CT

The New Jersey Devils’ six-game preseason takes them to Bridgeport, Connecticut to play the New York Islanders. With AHL training camp and preseason starting in a week, this could be the end for some. Still, fans can discuss the game as it happens.

It is not uncommon for preseason games to take place in “neutral” locations. The Devils hit the road for a game in Bridgeport, Connecticut - which is the home of the Islanders’ AHL affiliate. This game may have some extra intrigue as the AHL preseason begins in the following week so this contest may see some cuts from both sides afterwards.

The Song for the Afternoon: Ginger Root’s latest release in terms of a video from the City Slicker EP is a lyric video for “Entertainment,” which continues from the City Slicker video I linked to in yesterday’s Gamethread. It is clever in how the lyrics are a part of the fake credits rolling.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the third of six exhibition games. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no illegal streams, no links to illegal streams, no asking for illegal streams, no illegal 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!
