Today is the last stop for Our Favorite Team’s Western Canada road trip. Refreshingly, it is a matinee game. No more staying up late for hockey until mid-April. Also: The opponent is a great example of how a team can have the two of the best players in the world and find a way to not be a lock for even the playoffs.
The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Edmonton Oilers (SBN Blog: The Copper & Blue)
The Time: 3:00 PM ET
The Broadcasts: TV - MSG, SN; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (Access through NHL.com)
The Song for the Day: Since the previous two Gamethreads had loud, heavy songs, why not something a bit softer? Yet, technical? This is “falkor” by Covet from the effloresce album. Covet is the band featuring the astoundingly talented Yvette Young on guitar and possibly the most enthusiastic drummer ever on camera in Forrest Rice.
The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the fact that the game features Connor McDavid. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no illegal streams, no links to illegal streams, no asking for illegal streams, no illegal 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!
