Gameday Info: The biggest news is that forward Max Pacioretty will not play tonight. He had an emergency appendectomy and will remain out for 3-4 weeks. On the Devils side, Tom Gulitti reported that Stefan Matteau was moved to the top line and replaced Tedenby, who will shift to the fourth line.
Rules: This is a place where you can comment about this game before, during, and after it's played before the recap is up. This is a place where we primarily discuss the Devils game. An odd mention of other NHL games is OK, but it shouldn't dominate discussion. All comments will be clean, respectful of each other, relevant to the game, and legal (no streams). Please refrain from super-big pictures and/or .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone.
