The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (19-14-1) at the Carolina Hurricanes (11-19-6)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right over here. For the opposition's perspective, Bob Wage has this preview over at Canes Country.

A Song for Tonight: Do you like underrated power metal from the 1980s that doesn't copy the blueprint set out by legendary Keeper of the Seven Keys? If so, then you should discover Attacker, who formed in Weehawken, NJ. This is "Lords of Thunder" from their second album The Second Coming.

Gameday Info: As confirmed by Tom Gulitti and Rich Chere this morning, Henrik Tallinder did not travel with the team and Johan Hedberg will get the start in net for the Devils. Also: Tim Sestito will play in place of Eric Boulton presumably to give the team a source of ENERGY after the holidays. Basically, it's the same lineup from Friday's game with a different goaltender in net. Over at N&O's Canes Now, Chip Alexander reported that the Canes will start Cam Ward and their only lineup change is Tim Brent replacing Riley Nash on the fourth line.

As usual, you can use the comments in this post to discuss today's game before, during, and after it happens until the recap is up later tonight. Please remember the rules at all times. Namely: keep your comments clean, keep them on topic (the two teams in this game), and keep them legal (read: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). Go Devils!
