NHL HAIKU – STANLEY CUP FINALS EDITION

http://www.nbcsports.com/files/nbcsports/chi_tb_16x9.jpg

The finals are here!

Below, the tale of the tape

Rendered in haiku

Goaltending

Bolts lean on Bishop

Crawford leans on the Blackhawks

Advantage: Lightning

Defence

Duncan Keith. Duncan

Keith. Duncan Keith. Duncan Keith.

Advantage: Blackhawks

Forwards

Blackhawks’ Toews and Kane

Versus the Lightning’s triplets

Call this one a draw

Coaches

Cooper’s a fan fave

But he’s green and Q is not

Advantage: Blackhawks

Injuries

There’s no way to know

Everyone’s so tight-lipped

Advantage: Beats me

 

(We are pretty sure

Bolts are all done with the flu

Or will sneeze on Hawks)

How Many Games Will the Winner Need?*

Chicago in 6

Unless Keith’s battery dies

Then Tampa takes it

*

As always, please add:

“Unless one goalie gets hot –

Then all bets are off.”

All You Really Need to Know

In two weeks or less

Bettman will present the Cup

As the fans boo him
