In honor of the NHL season finally starting up on this fine Saturday comes some music from an Indie Rock group out of Connecticut who write songs exclusively about hockey. A band so obsessed that they list their two biggest influences as "The Beatles and Wayne Gretzky". Yeah, The Zambonis are that dedicated to the sport of slapping sticks and taking hits that they've been releasing songs about it for over 20 years now. One song in particular which is an oldie but a goodie, "Hockey Monkey", has always been a favorite of mine and just seems perfect to start the season off right. I will warn you though that this song may get stuck in your head for years after listening to it just once...
