Things are happening

In the NHL. Here are

Some in haiku form.

Capitals vs. Panthers (16/12/14)

Three shooters per side

Is bad enough. Twenty each?

The hockey gods wept.


They wept and wept and

(You see where this is going)

Wept and wept and wept.


Think that haiku was

Redundant? Try watching a

Twenty-round shootout.

Humongous Big News

Pucks and bears beware:

All is right in the universe –

Bryz is back, baby!

Calgary Calamity

The Flames’ “own goal?” Fluke.

The Flames’ seven-game, two-week

Losing streak? Quite real.

Zemgus Girgensons

A Sabre(!) maintains

The lead in All-Star voting.

Long live Latvia!


Oh yes, there are mumps.

Lots of mumps. Just assume mumps

From this point forward.


Finally, here’s a

Guest haiku from a reader.

Thanks, Sasky Stewart!

Rob Zepp

Thirteen years it took

To make the show, the wait worth

Every second.
