Pictured: not Bo Horvat.
The New Jersey Devils are in town tonight, surely to join the rest of Vancouver in the celebration of the commencement of the glorious Bo Horvat era. It's a neat bit of synchronicity that the team Cory Schneider now carries is the one in town on the day Bo Horvat officially becomes a full-time NHL player, as he'll play his former team for the second time in Vancouver, and the first head-to-head with Horvat.
