2022-23 Gamethread #3: New Jersey Devils vs. Anaheim Ducks

After failing to win a must-win (per Miles Wood) home opener against Detroit, the New Jersey Devils will try to win their first game of the season tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. This is a post where fans can discuss the game as it happens.

Anaheim Ducks v New York Islanders
Derek Grant and his missing teeth will be at the Rock tonight. Unless he is not.

The Home Opener at the Rock began with an excited and, dare I say, hopeful crowd. It ended with “Fire Lindy” chants in the third period and booing the team off the ice at the final buzzer. A better game is just about necessary at this point.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSG, BSSC, Audio - The Devils Hockey Network

The Song of the Night: I cannot believe I have to use this for the third game of the season. But as some of the People Who Matter pointed out, the last two games were more or less Games #83 and #84 of last season than #1 and #2 of this new season. To that end, I am reminded of this track from the seminal 1989 album Wrong by NoMeansNo: “Tired of Waiting.” Heed one of the final lyrics, Devils: “There’s only a very very fine line between biding one’s time and wasting one’s time.”

The Rules: As usual for this site since, well, the very beginning: Keep your comments clean (this means no swearing), 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.
