The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Philadelphia Flyers (SBN Blog: Broad Street Hockey)

The Song of the Night: A strong contender for what could be one of the best hardcore (and crossover and, dare I suggest, thrash?) albums of 2022, Mindforce’s New Lords album is filled with riffs in fewer than 20 minutes. You do not need a long track when a rippers like “Survival is Vengeance” gets right to the point.

The Rules: As usual for this site since, well, the very beginning: Keep your comments clean, respect your fellow Devils fan with no personal attacks, no illegal streams (this means no asking, no hints, no nothing about it) and please keep comments relevant to the game. Go Devils.
