The NHL is now back from a COVID-driven pause. Our Favorite Team will play their final road game of 2021 in an attempt to end a six-game winless streak and get their second win of the month. Yeah, it has been that bad.
The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Buffalo Sabres (SBN Blog: Die by the Blade)
The Time: 7:00 PM ET
The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+ 2, MSG-B; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (Access through NHL.com)
The Song for the Evening: And So I Watch You From Afar dropped an EP in 2020 called Successors. I regret not highlighting it earlier. “Odd Seal” still invokes a look to the future, as appropriate for December 29 of a given year.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the team playing their first game since December 20. 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!
