The Previews: My preview from much earlier this morning is right here. Please check it out if you haven't done so already. For the opposition's perspective, Kevin Kraczkowski has this preview up at Litter Box Cats.

The Pre-Game Video: The Devils official website finally put up the opening video before each playoff game at the Prudential Center this season. It's a fantastic video, one of the best I have ever seen from the Devils organization, and it's a must-watch. Thanks to user josephdaly11 for FanShotting it earlier today.

The Song for Tonight: It's the same must-win situation as Game 6; so the same song applies: "Death or Glory."

Gameday Info: As reported by the Miami Herald's David J. Neal at On Frozen Pond, defenseman Jason Garrison and goaltender Jose Theodore are expected to return to the lineup for the Florida Panthers tonight.

The Reminder: I know everyone's going to be a bit on edge for this one - myself included. Feelings and emotions will be running high. Still, remember that I and the other users commenting aren't the ones playing this game. There's no need to get salty among ourselves. To quote Bill S. Preston, Esq., be excellent to each other.

Please 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 (SPECIAL PLAYOFF RULE: Anything 2012 NHL playoff related is OK.), and keep them legal (for example: nothing about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). I'll provide commentary here as well as a tweet here and there at @InLouWeTrust. Go Devils!
