Gamethread #66: New Jersey Devils vs. Montreal Canadiens

Last time the New Jersey Devils faced the Montreal Canadiens, it was in front of few fans in Quebec and a 7-1 beating that saw Dominique Ducharme fired the next day.

There are 17 games left. Our Favorite Team blew out tonight’s opponent 7-1 back on February 8. It caused them to fire their head coach and replace him with the interim Martin St. Louis. They may play a little looser now and not let up a touchdown again. Still, Our Favorite Team should be able to beat them, right? Right?

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Montreal Canadiens (SBN Blog: Habs Eyes on the Prize)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - MSG, MSG+ 2, TSN2, RDS; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network (Access through NHL.com)

The Song for the Night: Since Every Time I Die appears to be done, how about another song by a similar-sounding band: The Undertaking! (The exclamation mark is in their name.) This is “And Everything Worked Out Just Fine,” from their album Funeral Psalms, which seems oddly fitting for two bottom-feeding teams.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the fact that the game is against one of the few teams worse than the Devils this season. 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!
