The Game: The New Jersey Devils (27-19-3) vs. the Montreal Canadiens (19-22-9)

The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's perspective, please check out Habs Eyes on the Prize.

A Song for Tonight: In the realm of indie rock, Real Estate has been making some waves. The band originally formed in Ridgewood and they just released their second album Days late last year. This is the fourth track: "It's Real." It may be early February but the song will make you feel like it's June, a month Montreal fans may be looking forward to with each passing day of this season.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported earlier this morning that while Bryce Salvador wasn't at the team's morning skate, Peter DeBoer believes he will be able to play tonight. If Salvador can't get through the pre-game skate or isn't there at all, then Matt Taormina will take his spot on the blueline. In fact, Taormina may play anyway - DeBoer said it was possible he could dress seven defensemen. If so, then expect Brad Mills to join Cam Janssen as a scratch. Considering how the fourth line has been this season, DeBoer might as well go with seven defensemen - Taormina can do more than the twelfth forward on the roster. As for the Canadiens, RDS reporter Renaud Lavoie tweeted Montreal's expected forward lines for tonight - as well as noting that defenseman Chris Campoli won't play.

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