Welcome to the State of Florida. First stop: the first-class hockey organization in the state, featuring multiple point-machines and an acclaimed goaltender who has earned his acclaim. That said, they are like Our Favorite Team given their position in the standings.

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

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

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the Tampa Bay Lightning

The Song of the Night: I will admit that I go to the Chuck Schuldiner well a lot whenever the Devils play a Florida-based team. And we’re going back again! The theme for this three-game trip is Death! From the 1992 classic Individual Thought Patterns, this is “Trapped in a Corner.” A cautionary tale about what happens when you do not stay true to what you are.

The Rules: The rules remain as they are even though this is the first time the Devils are playing in Tampa Bay this season. Keep your language 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.
