Gazza says 4-1 to the Devils

Glen & Ellie-Jo calls it 4-0 to the boys in red

Chris S calls it 5-3 Devils

Chris S tells me that the average number of unique viewers on MNL is up on last season

We would willingly give up some of our viewers if the went to the game instead as the team thrives on a noise RED ARMY

Whilst unconfirmed I have been told that G & Franny are thinking of viewing MNL whilst on the bench so that the team can benefit for the excellent tactical advice our texters are sending us

Ger_Devils, JohnWilding are at BBT already - there must be free beer

DEvils take to the ice for warmup

Did anyone else read about Arsenal flying to Norwich - a 20 minute flight at best, certainly not enough to get the card school going

They should take a bus ride to Dundee, walk off the bus and play

Stars are warming up

Come on U DEVILS lets bag the points and try to get 6 in the bag by Sunday night

I need something to cheer me up, its been a hard week.

Rachael calls it 4-1 to the Devils
