Good Morning, Wilderness!

The Wild take on Henrik "The King" Lunqvist and Rick Nash tonight. Before we get to the walk, please enjoy (or don't) this jersey foul spotted by The Royal Half on the twitter.

What's worse, our fearless leader Tony likes it...

Uffda... yikes.

UPDATE: In my foolishness, I attempted to post a live video of Pearl Jam. I should have known. But I know now, I learned.
