Preseason Gamethread #6: New Jersey Devils vs. New York Islanders

Preseason ends tonight for the New Jersey Devils. They will host the New York Islanders at the Rock. It could be an opening night roster, or something close to one. It will be the last game until October 15 when the season starts. Talk about it here as it happens.

This is the end of the Devils’ preseason. After tonight, the last six games are effectively meaningless in terms of results. The performances will remain in the mind of the decision makers - assuming they have not already made most of them prior to this game. Hopefully no one gets hurt tonight and the Devils have a sense of who is on their active roster to start the season in eight nights on October 15.

The Song for the Evening: With the end of the preseason comes the end of me using Ginger Root. At least for some time. I will end it with a song that came out as a single about two years ago called “Weather.” It is my favorite song by Cameron Lew; the video showcases his humor and versatility in names; and it is very catchy.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the final exhibition game for this year 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!
