Washington Capitals' veteran hockey forward Mike Knuble deserves his own theme music. He's one of the few guys on the team that is consistently willing to crash the net and try to jam in any loose pucks. Scoring with this style of play is known as a "dirty goal". Tonight, he got another one of these, when he shoved one through versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Capitals still lost the game, their third straight loss in the second round of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Having gone 0 and 3 so far in the Semi-Final best of seven series, maybe the Caps need more players to consistently go to the net.
Since Knuble does it on such a regular basis that he is known for it, I think his theme song should be the Frank Zappa classic, "Dirty Love" (1973). So, that's also my pick for this 'Today's Tune'.
