Right now, The Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers are winging it back to New York for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, after two overtime wins by the Kings, in a frenzied atmosphere that some of us either understand and appreciate, or don't. The Zambonis' Dave Schneider is one of those men who would check you into the boards if you were one of the lukewarm, for all he knows is a rabidness for the greatest game on ice. His band -- mostly a fringe institution anchored in the northeastern part of the country -- has made a sizable imprint in that world of puck heads, writing theme songs for NHL teams, performing at many NHL functions and tailgate parties, along with writing incredibly witty and tuneful songs about the game, its players and teams.
