The Devils head to Allentown, PA this afternoon for a pre-season date with the Flyers later tonight. Here is the roster:
Baddock, Bastian, Blandisi, Camper, Gignac, Josefson, Kujawinski, Queeneville, Rooney, Speers, Thomson and Wood up front. Helgeson, Jacobs, Merrill, Severson, Sissons, Stollery (extra man) and White on the back end. Kinkaid will play the entire game with Lindback backing him up.
You can watch tonight's game live on MSG+ at 7 p.m., however, don't expect to hear Cangi and Dano. MSG will be taking the Flyers feed from Comcast, so you're stuck with Philly's broadcast team. It's better than nothing!
The plan is for no one to play in back-to-back games, so tomorrow's roster against the Rangers will be much different. More on that tomorrow.
- Both Schneider and Palmieri skated with the team today and you can expect to see them in the lineup as early as Saturday against the Rangers.
- I wrote a feature on Mike McLeod with lots of stories from his parents about how he got so fast on the ice. You should read it.
- Cory was today's guest on Devils All-Access on Facebook Live. We talked a lot about the brand new coffee machine in the Devils' recently renovated locker room. You should watch it.
- The team agreed to terms with veteran defenseman Kyle Quincey on one-year deal this afternoon to add some oomph to the back end this season. Not known for his offense, he's a strong stay-at-home kind of player looking to prove he's still got it at 31-years-old. I'll have more from him for you in the next few days.
