Happy Halloween everybody! The day of tricks and treats is now upon us, and although the holiday itself is a shell of what it once was, you're all still highly likely to run into that person in the office or on the streets who takes it over the top. To those types, I thank you for keeping the holiday alive when the rest of us treat it like any other day.

Tonight the Minnesota Wild welcome the Jets to the X for their second match up against the boys from Winnipeg on the season. There will be costumes, there will be hockey, and there will be Nino Niederreiter, we think.

For your musical selection, always a favorite of mine, a little Blind Melon to start your day off correctly. Enjoy Wilderness!
