We apologize for the lateness of today's Tracks. We did a little too much celebrating last night. You might have heard about a hockey club from the desert beating some guys from the Windy City last night. In case not, we have plenty of links to fill you in on the historic accomplishment. Also, news on Mark Visentin's offensive explosion for Niagara yesterday and more.
