The Broadcast: TV - NBC Sports Network; Radio - 880 AM WCBS

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (23-21-12) vs. the Colorado Avalanche (35-14-5; SBN Blog: Mile High Hockey)

The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the opposition's point of view, here's Cheryl Bradley's preview at Mile High Hockey.

A Song for Tonight: For no other reason than the fact that I like this song, this is "The Cleric" by Havok from their 2012 album Time is Up.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti did confirm this afternoon at Fire & Ice what was thought yesterday: Anton Volchenkov isn't able to play so Peter Harrold has been activated from IR to play in his place tonight. As for the Avalanche, Adrian Dater reported at the Denver Post today that Paul Stastny and Alex Tanguay will not play tonight. He calls them two of their top forward. Stastny, definitely. Tanguay, nope. Dater also reported that Jean-Sebastian Giguere will start this game for the Avs.

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 and .GIFs to keep the gamethread moving for everyone. If you do post pictures make sure to post a title in the comment. Go Devils.
