Gamethread #41: New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers

Tonight is the first game in The Week of Hate, a run of four consecutive games between the New Jersey Devils and Our Hated Rivals. Familiarity breeds contempt. And contempt for the New York Rangers is already familiar. This post is a Gamethread for Devils fans to discuss the game as it happens.

The New Jersey Devils have nothing to play for in 2021. The very least they can do is to beat Our Hated Rivals and exact revenge from the last two embarrassments against them at the Rock back in March. This is the first game in The Week of Hate.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Rangers

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

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

The Song for the Evening: The Devils need the mentality that the day is theirs. And the night is also theirs. They need to play with a fire and soak Our Hated Rivals in it. Fittingly, from the classic album The Renaissance, this is “Baptism” by E-Town Concrete.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the first game of The Week of Hate. 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!
