Wilderness Walk for 10-18-2011: Game Day Edition

Hey guys, sorry to interrupt. Is that a chocolate?

You know that feeling you get when it's game day, and everything is going to go perfectly, just because it's game day and you get to watch hockey? I hope you all have that. If you don't, think back to the summer. Pretend it's about July 17th or so. Now, think about it.

Hockey. Tonight.

Revel in it. Do it for me. I won't be watching, as I am having Lasik surgery, and I am told all I will want to do is sit in a dark room and sleep. Maybe the skeptics are wrong (they rarely are) and I can enjoy the game. Let's hope.

For now, make the jump and read up on everything you need to know for tonight. Or, you know, read the links we included. Don't forget the Question of the Day.
