The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (15-13-9) vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs (20-13-4)

The Game Previews: My preview from this morning is right here. As for a Toronto-based opinion, Pension Plan Puppets will probably have something closer to gametime. You may want to get in their charity trivia contest thing too.

The Song for Tonight: One of my favorites: "Repeat Defender" by Don Caballero from their seminal second album: 2.

Gameday Info: The Devils skated this morning and Tom Gulitti has the lines and pairings in this post from Fire & Ice. It appears that Steve Sullivan will start with Patrik Elias and Andrei Loktionov. It also appears that Jacob Josefson and Tom Kostopoulos will not play as they're on the fifth line with Krystofer Barch. So, good for Matt D`Agostini - for now. The defensive scratches looks like Anton Volchenkov and Adam Larsson. As for the opposition, James Mirtle did confirm on Twitter that Leo Komarov is now off IR and will play tonight.

The Reminder of Rules: Yes, a reminder's in order for those new or those who don't read the text in this gamethread. 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 posting super-big pictures and .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone.

I will provide sparse commentary here and through @InLouWeTrust as I'll be in my usual seat in Row 16 in Section 1. Go Devils! Please win.
