The Series: The New Jersey Devils (1) vs the (3)
The Pre-Game Video: Here's the awesome pre-game video the Devils have been using before playoff games at the Rock. Watch it before tonight's game to get that feeling everyone felt at the Rock prior to every home game in this playoff run.
The Songs for Tonight: How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today turned out not only to be the major label debut for Suicidal Tendencies, but also one of the hallmark crossover thrash albums. Here's the closer to the album, which is most appropriate for the Devils faithful: "The Feeling's Back."
(Of course, I'll still be blasting "Meddler" by August Burns Red when I go to the game.)
The Reminder to Be Excellent to Each Other: I know quite a few people are going to be a bit on edge for this game 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 or against any trolls from other places. Seriously, don't feed any trolls of any kind, don't get mad that people are/aren't being negative/positive, and don't troll Jewels From the Crown. Punishment there can/will be brought over here.
Additionally, please don't post any .GIFs and large images in this Gamethread. That will help keep this post going smoothly for everyone, either on a computer or a mobile device. It's another way of being excellent.
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, and keep them legal (For example: nothing is allowed about illegal streams - no links, no discussion, no requests). I will provide occasional commentary here and on Twitter with @InLouWeTrust from my seat in Section 1, Row 16 as battery, mobile connection, time, and nerves allow.
Hopefully for not the last time this season: Let's go, Devils!
