The purpose of these GameThreads is to provide a forum for you to comment about the game. Comments are live - so you do not need to refresh the page to see new comments and replies. Now, truth be told, I usually set these up in advance and to be opened about an hour to 90 minutes before game time. This way you can discuss any breaking news prior to the game or just get to get pumped for some hockey. Please continue commenting here during the game, which is set up for talking about that awesome hit (insert player here) threw or that sweet goal scored by (insert player here) or to declare "Balderdash!" when (insert player here) from the opposition scores.
All I ask is that you keep the comments fairly on-topic (an odd tangent here and there is OK, but focus on the game), be respectful even if some hater talks more junk than what they have in their trunk, don't post anything illicit or illegal (read: no pirate streams), and please keep all comments clean.
Any new info we get here will be added by our new writer Steve Lepore; and he'll take care of any quick post-game duties while I travel back from the Rock. Thank you for reading and enjoy the game. Go Devils!
