THIS WEEK IN NHL HAIKU – 19/1/15!/fileImage/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/16x9_620/jets-blackhawks-hockey.jpg

Things are happening

In the NHL. Here are

Some in haiku form.

Leave of Absence

Cease babbling, brook.

Stay your chirp, cricket. Be still:

Marty needs to think.


Sabres retire

All-time great goalie’s number

Then resume tanking.

All Clear?

Don’t want to jinx, but

No new mumps cases this week.

Could it be over?


And now we present
Guest haiku by our readers.
Thanks to all of them!

Thug Life

by @cindiepal

Ninth time suspended

“I scoff at your silly rules.”

So says Carcillo.

No Goals, All Cry

by @Mcassin11Mike

Toronto shut out

Blue garments on Garden ice

Phil Kessel is sad.

Wings vs. Leafs, 18/1/15

by Megan Marshall (@megandianne88)

3-zip after first

Fourth goalie of the season

Then the comeback starts


Gus, Drew, Tomas score

Hank scores hat trick – curly fries!

Goalie gets first win!

No ties

by @Ffeisty

Don’t hate the shootout

Many stars will show their skill.

All get loser points.
