On tonight’s Puckcast, Fork and CT welcome Kevin from In Lou We Trust, which is the internet’s foremost blog on the New Jersey Devils. Who cares about the New Jersey Devils you ask? Well, touche.

The Devils were tied for the most points in the NHL going into tonight, feature several good young scorers, a Hall of Fame goaltender and an outstanding defense. But New Jersey came out a step slow, and the Blackhawks absolutely buried them.
