The weekend in Upstate Western New York continues with another afternoon game between the New Jersey Devils and the Buffalo Sabres. That’s right, January ends with a back-to-back sight of Taylor Hall in blue and yellow. Hopefully, NJ gets some revenge with a win.

For today, this is the album opener and one of Snapcase’s best songs: “Caboose.”
