2023 Playoffs Gamethread #1: New Jersey Devils vs. Our Hated Rivals

Welcome to the 2023 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The New Jersey Devils begin their first round match-up against Our Hated Rivals, the New York Rangers tonight. I should not need to tell you who you should support. This post is a gamethread, where Devils fans can discuss the game as it happens.

For the first time since 2018, welcome back to the playoffs. This is Game 1, an important one to get a series off on the right footing.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. Our Hated Rivals

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcast: National TV - TBS, SN360, TVAS; Local TV - MSGSN2 (MSG2 for the other side); Digital Audio - The One Jersey Network

The Song for Tonight (and Perhaps the Series?): I could pick a song for each game. Instead, I will leave it to you. Do you need another song for this series other than the memorable “Raining Blood” from the classic Reign in Blood by the legendary Slayer? Either way, it’s tonight’s song at a minimum.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules even as the Devils are in the playoffs. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams, no streams), and all about the game itself. Other scores are OK, but let’s make sure the comments here are primarily about the Devils and this game. Also, let’s respect each other, there’s no need for drama or unwelcome nature of any sort. This is a game thread, let’s focus on the game. Play nice with each other or you will not play at all. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
