Gamethread #43: New Jersey Devils at New York Rangers

The third game in the The Week of Hate, a run of four consecutive games between the New Jersey Devils and Our Hated Rivals, is an afternoon affair that is the last one in NYC for this year. 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 Week of Hate does end after this weekend. But not today. The weekend will see a back-to-back of tension first. Today concludes the season series at The World’s Most Overrated Arena. Grab a lunch and hope the right team wins this game.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the New York Rangers

The Time: 12:30 PM ET

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

The Song for the Afternoon: While The Renaissance was a classic by E-Town Concrete, the follow up Made for War was not too shabby. From that album, this is “Blood.”

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of this being the third 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!
