I wasn’t exactly planning a pregame blog post, since it is a preseason game, but there’s lots of info to process before the Devils and Rangers hit the ice at the Times Union Center tonight.
-A preview of tonight’s matchup courtesy of In Lou We Trust.
-Per Devils coach Peter DeBoer, rookie Keith Kinkaid is scheduled to start and play all 60 minutes tonight. First opponent? None other than Henrik Lundqvist. Good luck, kid. I am very looking forward to finally seeing what he can do against pro competition, since we will be seeing a lot of him here this season.
Planning on following along tonight? Here’s a couple of ways to do so:
-The game will be televised on MSG, with I believe the Ranger broadcast team and Chico Resch.
-I’ll have a little bit on the Twitter side (not full on updates, those start next Saturday in Glens Falls), but you can also follow @fireandicegame, they will have full coverage.
-Game time: 7 PM. The Rangers are considered the home team, however the Devils will occupy the normal “home” bench but wear their road uniforms.
