Our Favorite Team takes on the new sensation in Connor Bedard tonight. Also, other players in Chicago. Here is the thing: Bedard is legitimate.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: TV - MSGSN, NHL Network; Radio - Devils Hockey Network (on Audacy)

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Chicago Blackhawks

The Song of the Night: The theme for this road trip is the Big Four of German Thrash Metal. Tankard was a group that was very much there in the 1980s as metal became a thing in Germany. But they did not fit the image what with a good part of their songs being about drinking alcohol and not being so demonic. Times have changed and it seems they have earned their respect. Here is one of their non-alcohol-related singles, “Minds on the Moon” from their 1995 album, The Tankard.

The Rules: The rules remain even as the Devils are away in Illinois: Keep your comments clean (this means no swearing, don’t mask it, it’s not enough), respect your fellow Devils fan with no personal attacks (play nice or you will not play here), no illegal streams (this means no asking, no hints, no nothing about it), and please keep comments relevant to the game. Go Devils.
