A Song for Tonight: Let's continue the instrumentals. This is CAFO by Animals as Leaders from their self-titled album. Dig those guitars with more than six strings on them.

Gameday Info: Steve got a post up earlier today about tonight's lineups for both teams. In this post by Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice, there's more of a reason to pay attention to tonight's game: the first set of cuts will be Thursday. Oh, and Pavel Zacha will be starting at center.
