Wilderness Walk: Hatsapalooza Edition

Let the hats rain down!

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Ryan Suter you magnificent beast you!

You know, I have a hat meant for Xcel Energy Center ice, which I've never had the chance to rid myself of without risk of being ejected from the arena. Comes with me every game I attend, ever-ready to fly over the glass.

Last nights game-thread, read top to bottom is just about as excellent as it can get.

Relax Wilderness. Try not to think about how right now is as warm as it's going to get for the next 48 hours or so. Embrace the cold, lets walk.
