The last time the New Jersey Devils played the Washington Capitals, they managed to make a huge comeback in D.C. in the third period to force overtime. While they lost in OT, it was the team’s first point against the Caps this season. Can the Devils take another step forward tonight?

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG+, NBCSWA+; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (

The Song for the Evening: Do you want a somewhat generic themed but anthemic hardcore song? How about such a song by a band from Switzerland? And named after a chess player? I got you: This is “The Line” by Kasparov. By the way, I don’t know what “we are the break water in their way” means either.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the Devils not likely able to erase a 1-4 deficit in a period again so let us hope they do not go down by as much. 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!
