Game #81: NJ Devils vs. NY Islanders

Loading Scores

The Time: 7 PM EDT/4 PM PDT  -- TV: MSG (HD) --  Radio: 660 AM WFAN

The Previews: Here's my preview from earlier this morning; check out Lighthouse Hockey for Isles-based opinions.

A Song to Pump You Up: Incredibly appropriate given that the Devils are back home for their next four games (two regular season, first two playoff games), it's "Ironbound" by Overkill.

Other Games of Note: The Pittsburgh Penguins, who tied with the Devils in wins and points, will visit the Atlanta Thrashers.  The Buffalo Sabres are a point behind the Atlantic Division leader, they will visit the Ottawa Senators.  If you want the Devils to finish second in the Eastern Conference, then you want Atlanta and Ottawa to succeed.

This Is A Charitable GameThread: For each comment posted on this GameThread, I will be contributing an additional $0.15 to TEAMJLO, an ovarian cancer education and fund raising group.

The organization was set up by the Lopez family in honor of their mother and friend, Janice Lopez - the aforementioned JLO - who was struck by ovarian cancer several years ago. While Janice Lopez is no longer with us, the fight against ovarian cancer continues.  They've been working together with the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation since 2005 as well as the Kaleidoscope of Hope (link goes to NJ affiliate).

Special Rules for the Charitable GameThread:  First, please no images in the comments, that will just slow down the GameThread.   Second, please don't spam the GameThread with pointless comments. TThere's 9 games going on this evening with two others that finished before hand - including this one. Surely, you can say something about the Devils, Islanders, this game, or some other NHL game.  Let's do some good, let's not do it by being a pain to others.

Standard Ending Message: As always, please keep the comments clean, relevant to some hockey game, and civil.  Go Devils!
