The Time: 7:30 PM EST

The Broadcast: TV - NBC SN, TSN2; Radio - 970 AM WNYM

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (15-14-10) vs. Boston Bruins (25-9-4)

The Game Previews: John's preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, please check out Stanley Cup of Chowder.

The Song for Tonight: Medicine by Monster Magnet. An early classic track from these nice young gentlemen from Red Bank about the wonders and perils of modern pharmaceuticals. If scoring came in pill form...well you can figure out the rest.

Gameday Info: As Tom Gulitti reported earlier today: Peter DeBoer feels the team's memory must be short and their focus present if the wins are to come. With nine regular season games remaining and Ilya Kovalchuk still only a ghost in the machine the time must be now for regulation success that ALSO brings with it two points. So once again this evening we look to the names we trust (besides Lou) and hope for heroism from the likes of Martin Brodeur, Patrik Elias and someone...anyone on the defensive end. The Boston Bruins arrive in Newark this eve without one Patrice Bergeron (head) but with a very capable (and hot) line comprised of Brad Marchand/Jaromir Jagr/Gregory Campbell. No word yet if Jagr is wearing the same pair of skates that scored on Brodeur when the teams met last.

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 to keep the gamethread moving for everyone. If you do post pictures make sure to post a title in the comment. No .GIFs shall be posted...so it is written so it is the law.

John will provide commentary here and through @InLouWeTrust throughout the game. Let's go Devils!!!
