The Matchup: New Jersey Devils (3-6-4) at Minnesota Wild (7-4-3; SBN Blog: Hockey Wilderness)

The Game Previews: Jerry has this preview from earlier this morning where he implores the team to play better. Well, they pretty much have to, really. Joe Bouley has this preview at Hockey Wilderness focusing on a certain player on the Wild.

A Song For Tonight: I'm not sorry for this selection: "You never said that it would be ea-sy."

Game Night Info: A number of changes for the New Jersey Devils tonight. First, Tom Gulitti confirmed at Fire & Ice that Cory Schneider will start tonight. He's been activated from injured reserve and Keith Kinkaid was returned to Albany. Second, Gulitti also reported that defenseman Jon Merrill was called up. Making space for him on the roster was Peter Harrold, who was placed on injured reserve retroactive to last week. I doubt the Devils would call up a defender if they weren't going to play him so expect someone to sit. Should he play, it will be Merrill's NHL regular season debut. Third, Gulitti reported after last night's game that Travis Zajac and Patrik Elias did not make the trip to Minnesota. That's just bad news as anyone who saw last night's game would tell you.

The Reminder of Rules: This is a place where you can (and should) comment about this game before, during, and after it's played, until 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/or .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone.

Go Devils. Please?
