VERY IMPORTANT EDITORIAL NOTE: Due to the tragedy in Boston, our gamethread is taking a major turn tonight. Instead of using our own gamethread, we will visit our SBNation sister blog Stanley Cup of Chowder in their gamethread, as a show of support for their city. Please join us there, as hockey fans from all 30 teams will unite.

I was planning to use another song for tonight's gamethread, but the tragedy in Boston changed my mind on that matter. After the explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, their city is on high-alert lock-down. On behalf of everyone, allow me to reiterate that our thoughts are with their city today. The NHL has also postponed the Bruins game tonight, since they were set to host the Senators in their own arena.
Although Boston is on shutdown tonight, the show goes on in Nashville, where the Canucks are visiting the Predators for a game. We get to see another appearance from Roberto Luongo, who proved last week that he is still more than able to help share the goaltending load for Vancouver. Pekka Rinne is the perennial beast at the other end of the rink, and their team has a fun rivalry with us already.
On with the show. Coconuts go!
Tonight's gamethread theme had its song changed to this classic by Queen:
