Welcome everyone. Tonight, you get some elimination games, so game threes, and of course, Game 1 for the Aeros. FOur NHL playoff games, the top affiliate of the Wild starting their campaign. A night packed with hockey. Does life get any better?

Well, I mean... sure, the Wild could be involved, but you can't be greedy at this point.

From Ms. Conduct, here are the ways you can tune into the game:

Video Option ($):Buy the game on AHLLive.com for $9.99 each game. Fair warning: The quality is sometimes pretty crappy on this site, but if you're into it, unless you can find pirated feed, it's all you've got for video.

Audio Options:

Radio: 1070 AM KNTH (need Flash)

Listen via Smartphone:

Download the TuneIn Radio app; search Houston, then KNTH.And if all else fails, here's the OKC Barons listening info, but it's obviously their feed: http://www.okcbarons.com/index.cfm?fa=listenlive

@3rdIntermission - Ms. Conduct is generally the voice behind game-time tweets for T3I

@Aero_Joe - Voice of the Aeros, though generally he's too busy talking to tweet much

From the Wild's video editor via Twitter, here are some highlights of Mikhael Granlund. The Wild did NOT product this video, and the song in the background contains some harsh language. It's a rap song. You've been warned.
