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

The Song for Tonight: Home of the Blues by Johnny Cash Well technically it's the home of the NJ Devils but emotionally it is no doubt that The Rock will be home of the blues this evening.

Gameday Info: As Tom Gulitti reported today: David Clarkson is another player facing the question that these games may be his last as a NJ Devil, although like Elias, Clarkson has stated it won't enter his mind and/or effect his play. Patrik Elias has backed up his statements of playing with mental clarity through these final games with three total goals in the last three contests. Johan Hedberg will get his final start in net for NJ this season and in doing so will face his former team of three seasons. The Pittsburgh Penguins will once again be without Sidney Crosby this eve (jaw) but center Evgeni Malkin will play. The Penguin to watch tonight may very well be Brenden Morrow, who has five goals and eleven points in the last 9 games played for his squad.

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!!!
