Game notes

The Bruins head west, seeking a win.

The Coyotes stand in their way.

If you’re anxiously waiting for the game to begin,

8 PM is the time they will play.

Arizona was Phoenix; they changed their name,

And tried to rebrand their whole team.

"Coyotes 2.0! We’re not the same!"

Yet winning remains but a dream.

Vrbata’s the scorer; OEL leads on D.

Mike Smith’s back between the pipes.

Duclair and Domi are good, you will see,

And Chychrun’s play has been nice.

The leader, however, remains Shane Doan,

He loves to throw hits high and low.

He’s never seen an elbow he could leave alone,

Or a late hit that he could let go.

Let’s get it straight: the Bruins should win,

We’re going to be perfectly frank.

With 4 lines getting going and pucks going in,

It’s the Coyotes the Bruins should spank.

Khudobin is back, he’s making the trip,

And it may be too early to say.

But if Rask needs a break or his game starts to slip,

Khudobin will probably play.

The power play worked, the offense was great

The last time the B’s took to the ice.

Another five goals in the Grand Canyon State

Would really be incredibly nice.

So pull up a chair, pour out a beer

Put some good food on your plate.

Bruins. Coyotes. The game’s almost here.

Let’s hope, for the Bruins, it’s great.

Never forget
