The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils vs. the Winnipeg Jets

The Song of the Night: Since the Jets, in hockey, were only successful at winning championships in the 1970s, it is only appropriate to highlight Winnipeg’s biggest band from the 1970s: Bachman-Turner Overdrive. BTO was certainly of their era in terms of rock and I think some of their work holds up quite well decades later. You know the singles but I encourage you to dig a little deeper into their catalogue. The title track to 1974’s Not Fragile is a muscular 70s rock song with a memorable riff and some dueling solos.
