The Game Previews: Mike's preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, please check out Blue Shirt Banter.

The Song for Tonight: Sons of Satan by Venom. I had to pull out all the stops for todays game! If you don't know Venom then you don't know metal and if you don't know metal then well...enjoy watching golf today.

Gameday Info: As Tom Gulitti reported yesterday: Today's contest between the New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils is a meaningful one indeed. Peter DeBoer himself called the game a "must win" and a "man's game" so you know this one is for real. The good news for the Devils is the return of Ilya Kovalchuk seemed to breathe life into the squad yesterday and Patrik Elias alone was ready to take on the world. The bad news for the Devils remains in the fact that both Brad Richards and Rick Nash have been playing to their lofty expectations. The Devils may not make the playoffs but I am sure we will see a playoff like atmosphere today.

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 it is written so it is the law.

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