Memorize and sing this recap the next time you’re at karaoke. It’s to the tune of a popular Billy Joel song that you may have heard.

First Period

Bert’s out, Gagner’s in, will Svech ever play again?
Puck drop, game time, Fabbri’s on the top line
Four minutes, zero shots, Luke is owning faceoff dots
Oh wait, what’s this, Glenny shoots, Rinne miss

Oh boy, penalty, dread grows exponentially
Drop pass, zone entry, it still looks really shitty
Can’t set up, bottom’s up, fans’ll drain another cup
No shots, well great, drought is now at thirty-eight

Nashville’s turn, looks good, sets up like a pro team should
Puck movement, pass around, PK players wearing frowns
Of course, tie game, Nemeth’s marking’s pretty lame
Dylan Larkin, post again, time for intermission, Ken!

Our power play’s still real bad
From bad entry passes to Jeff Blashill’s glasses*
Our power play’s still real bad
It is such a bore, and it will never score

Second Period

Larkin’s flying, Fabbri chance, Rinne does a slide dance
Staal takes a penalty, pk killed, easily
Detroit power play, can’t score, no way
Red Wings Goal, Sam Gagner, what the hell was that, Rinne?

Filip Forsberg nearly scores, Bernier, close the door
Mick’s mad about the lottery, to be fair, so are we
Coach’s masks, chin straps, hoping we don’t collapse
One goal lead, forty gone, over to Ozzy and John

Our power play’s still real bad
From bad entry passes to Jeff Blashill’s glasses
Our power play’s still real bad
It is such a bore, and it will never score

Third Period

Nashville ties it up at two, I am feeling pretty blue
We’re back on the power play, wonderful, great, yay
What a shock, bad again, Liston beats Patterson
Could be worse, no shorty, goalless streak, now forty

Sam Gagner second goal, Harpur is an asshole
Four on four, Marc Staal, nearly scores, ha lol
Erne scores, Rinne sucks, he somehow cannot hold the puck
Sam Gagner, hat trick, our offense is pretty sick! **

We didn’t lose this game!
Thanks to Pekka Rinne, we got the win hey
We didn’t lose this game!
But the man advantage is still real mismanaged

Repeat until fade out


* This makes little sense, but I had to include Blashill, right?
** Not really, but five goals, right?
