Devils had Greene, palmieri, zacha, Elias, Schneider and Henrique greet fans at various entrances to the arena to meet with fans and take pics.

They also allowed stempniak and I think tlusty warm up without wearing helmets.

Welcome to the 21st century devils.

 

This is also great because this kind of "extra mile" stuff helps fans get through lean times.  Nice to see this organization showing some more warmth.

They split their squads up tonight to play both games.

Thnx.  I had no idea. 

 

I never remember a hockey split squad. Apparently it confused Optimum too. They are showing the Isles live on msg+ with the philly feed while their listings say they're playing us.

Neither do I.  It is nice to have most of our preseason games on TV.  Used to only be when they played NYR.

I'm listening to the radio feed. Sounds like Blandisi is playing well. Sherry and Matt are raving about him anyway. Other than his goal, it sounds like he's playing with a bit of an edge and getting some power play time.

He can be a really good 2nd/3rd liner for us. He has not looked out of place this entire training camp.

Anyone here actually go to the game? I spent my night screaming in frustration over at Red bull arena. I'll be at the game tomorrow. I'm curious to see any changes to the arena, etc etc.

 

 

The new clubs look really nice. The food vendors were slow but were very apologetic about being rusty on the first night back. Some new sandwiches and things to choose from throughout the arena as well as an additional bar where the Kids Zone use to be.  

 

 

Blandisi played very well. It's amazing how much faster this team is compared to last season.

This is what caught my eye. Devils Twitter tweaking the Islander fan. A different time for Devil fans under new management.

Would've been OK if that clip had actually been funny.

Back in 2012 during a playoff game against the Flyers, during a stoppage, the Devils played a montage from the Rocky movies, starting with Rocky running through the streets with all of the Philadelphia faithful behind him and "Gonna Fly Now" blaring away...just when I was thinking "WTF, Rocky is from Philly", the montage became a collage of Rocky getting pummeled and pummeled over and over again...now THAT was pretty friggin' funny (and clever). The Islander thing was very lame by comparison.

Good to hear, I know they had several players who weren't playing greeting fans at the entrances last night as well. It's nice to see the team trying to step up the off ice details of running the franchise.

I'm excited for this season just based on us being a bit younger and quicker. Sure we may not make the playoffs but I don't feel like the games will be as miserable to watch as it was last season. Last season was the first time I felt like it was a chore to have season tickets. I just hated way too much about the entire season. I'm really probably too excited and optimistic about this season.

I remember that!

Holy sh!t was that funny, my entire section was hysterically laughing.

If the Devils twitter can be half as good as LA's I'll be happy.

The Carolina "fan" getting the pie in the face was pretty funny too (though obviously very staged). And yeah, my section was laughing at the Rocky thing as well. That was a great one, from set-up to finish.

So no one else attended the game? Was hoping to get some more details about who played well.

My mom went and said there barely anyone there. I'm guessing the Pope nonsense kept a lot of people from wanting to drive, idk. Personally I went to the red bulls game cause their regular season trumps preseason Devils for me.

The game tonight should be on TV I would assume. I'm going tonight though and I'm excited for my first game of the season.
