Montgomery High School group drums up support for Devils during Stanley Cup run

NEWARK - It starts with a big hit.

A New Jersey Devils player lays out a member of another team. The crowd at the Prudential Center cheers wildly, but disjointedly.

For a group of Montgomery High School students, it’s time to go to work. Their drumsticks strike their polyethylene drum heads in perfect rhythm.

Thwack. Thwack. Thwack-thwack-thwack. Let’s go Dev-ils.

This group of teenagers, who two months ago hadn’t played to an audience larger than a high school football game, now lead a crowd of 17,625. And tonight, they’ll do it for hockey’s marquee event — the Stanley Cup Finals.


:cheers:

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Love the band. They've been great all playoffs long. Hopefully this becomes a staple at Devils games.

It's awesome. Anyone complaining about it should get right the fvck out of the Rock.

When they poured out into the concourse after beating Florida in game 6 it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.

They should have a rotation of NJ high schools come in and play. It's too much for one school to do every home game, but if you get each group to do 3-4 games a season, they can make this work.

I remember them at the March game. This is awesome, Jerseyana if you will. This is good PR with the schools, etc. Maybe we get other schools involved each with different ideas/songs, etc. Then we can have every game covered.
