Apparently nobody had preview duty today. So here's a very haphazard Game Thread thing. The inmates are running the asylum today!
Devils roll into the Wells Fargo Center today for a little Saturday Matinee hockey. Should be a good one. Matt Read and Sean Couturier are on fire. Ilya Kovalchuk is pretty hot too. Wayne Simmonds normally has a good game against the Devils. Coatsey's mic is giving feedback and fuzz. It's all shaping up to be a good game.
Questions to answer
1. Claude Giroux scored at the end of the last game. Did that open the flood gates?
2. How about Jagr? Will his karma catch up to him and provide him with some scoring?
3. Remember last year when the Devils were terrible for awhile? Wasn't that awesome?
