Good evening. Hope all is well with you.

Warm up coming to a close with only Scott Hotham scratched from the Devils line up, so Lordo is kitted and icing tonight
Devils playing in predominantly white this evening.
Two predictions so far, from Pat who predicts 2-1 for Devils and Darren who is very optinistic of a 4-0 Devils win
The ref is Neil Wilson and the Linos are Allan Ward and Colin Connor
Warm up over

Mark Gough will be happy with any kind of win
especially after last might.
