Happy Halloween everyone! Even though today is a special day for those of you who like costumes and candy, today was also the day of former head coach Flip Saunders' memorial.

Randy Wittman attended the service in Minnesota which was held earlier Saturday, but he may not make it in time for tonight's game. If this is the case, Don Newman and Don Zierden will be co-head coaches, according to Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post.

Meanwhile at Verizon Center, there will be a playoff look:

I don't know if the Verizon Center will have boxes of candy available for the kiddies for this game, but it sure would be nice.

Finally, here's a spooky and classic music video for you to enjoy:

We haven't been 2-0 since the 2005-06 season, and we also have a shot to match that team's 3-0 start tonight.

Sit back, enjoy the candy, and let's do this!
