The Game Previews: Karen's preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, feel free to read Robert P.'s post at Jewels from the Crown.

The Song for Tonight: King of Fools by Social Distortion. As honest Abe Lincoln once stated: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time." For the NJ Devils sake let's hope the Kings are indeed feeling quite foolish this eve.

Gameday Info: Damien Brunner will be a healthy scratch for the Devils and Mattias Tedenby will take his place in the lineup. Cory Schneider is expected to start in net over Martin Brodeur. As for the injury report New Jersey defenseman Anton Volchenkov is still out with a leg injury. Defenseman Bryce Salvador (foot) and forward Ryane Clowe (head) will also be unavailable. In addition to Jonathan Quick, the Kings are without forwards Kyle Clifford (head) and Jeff Carter (foot), as well as defenseman Matt Greene (upper body).

The Reminder of 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 (read: no streams). Please refrain from super-big pictures and .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone. If you do post pictures make sure to post a title in the comment. Go Devils.
