The Song for Tonight: Mean Streets by Starkweather. Dark days bring on dark songs my friends and Philly area Starkweather knows how to write tracks bleak and dismal with the best of them. Mean streets seemed quite appropriate for this evenings tilt what with the game taking place in "the city of brotherly love".
Gameday Info: As Tom Gulitti reported earlier today: Andrei Loktionov will be a healthy scratch in tonights game for the New Jersey Devils and will be replaced by Jacob Josefson. Ilya Kovalchuk will once again not be on the ice for the Devils as his injured shoulder has not fully healed. Martin Brodeur will get his 13th consecutive start in net and once again attempt to attain his 667th NHL win. Ilya Bryzgalov will tend the twine for the Philadelphia Flyers tonight while newly acquired Steve Mason will wait his turn on the bench. Flyers forward Jakub Voracek has goals in two consecutive games and now has 19 in this shortened season. This is the fifth and final regular season meeting between the two squads.
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!!!
