Thank you to all the men and women who have died in service to protect the U.S.

The Stanley Cup Finals begin tonight as the Pittsburgh Penguins look to defend their title against the Nashville Predators.

Legendary musician Gregg Allman died over the weekend at the nice old age of 69, so today we’ll take time to remember both him and all those who died serving. Enjoy the Walk.

Wild News

Be honest with yourself, you were hoping to see no news here. The last few times we went begging for Wild news all we got was drama in the form of Nino trade rumors and false (?) Kaprisov signing news.

It’s better this way, at least for now.
