For the first time since January 31, this is a New Jersey Devils gamethread. I am happy it is here too. How sweet would it be for a rusty Devils team to beat Our Hated Rivals in their first game back? Too sweet. That is how sweet it would be.
The Time: 7:00 PM ET
The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+ 2, (MSG for the other side); Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (Radio.com)
The Song for the Evening: Can hardcore be, well, hard with a melodic riff for about 80 seconds before the song starts properly? The answer is: yes, of course. 1990s NYHC standouts Crown of Thornz proved that with “Juggernaut.” I think this is the version from their 1996 album Mentally Vexed as opposed from the one on their 1995 EP Train Yard Blues.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the first gamethread since January. 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!
