The New Jersey Devils start this weekend's back-to-back on the road in Carolina to play the Hurricanes. Users can discuss the game here an hour before it begins, as it happens, and until the recap is available.
The Time: 7:00 PM EST
The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Radio - 1130 AM WBBR
The Song for Tonight: Just drive to the net and keep the puck far away from Johan Hedberg. This is not the intended meaning of "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" by Deftones from Around the Fur. But you'll like the track all the same.
Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported this morning at Fire & Ice that Bryce Salvador picked up an "upper body" injury and did not travel to Carolina with the team. That means Adam Larsson will play tonight. I think the team will manage. Over at Canes Now, Chip Alexander reported this morning that Dan Ellis will start the game for the Hurricanes and that Riley Nash and Chris Terry will be in the lineup. That should move Jussi Jokinen up to play with Jeff Skinner and Jordan Staal on their second line, per Alexander.
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 do not post super-big pictures or .GIFs so the gamethread can keep moving for everyone. If you must use pictures, please put a title in the comment.
I'll chime in at times here and through @InLouWeTrust on Twitter. Go Devils! Make it two!
