The Song for Tonight: Cherubim by Bloodlet. Ladies and gentlemen of ILWT I present my personal all time favorite band from Florida: the mighty Bloodlet. This particular track was released in 1995 which just so happens to be one of my personal all time favorite years. Perhaps that year is a favorite of yours as well....
Gameday Info: As Tom Gulitti reported earlier today: Ilya Kovalchuk will return to the lineup today for the New Jersey Devils and Steve Sullivan will suffer the healthy scratch notation. The rest of the Devils lineup will remain the same from the Philadelphia box score. This will be the third and final meeting between the two squads today. The Florida Panthers come into today's battle with a four game losing streak and giving up a total of 11 goals combined in their last two. Although no one has told left wing Tomas Fleischmann that the Panthers season is over as he has 4 goals and 13 points in the last 15 games played.
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!!!
