NHL Games from 10/16/2015 (Haiku Game Recaps)

San Jose Sharks 2 at New Jersey Devils 1 (SO)
 
Wins elude the Devs
But they know what to work on:
PP and face-offs.
 
 
Toronto Maple Leafs 6 at Columbus Blue Jackets 3
 
Even the winless win
When the true losers collide.
Congrats, Mike Babcock.
 
 
Carolina Hurricanes 5 at Detroit Red Wings 3
 
Nice game, Bruce McGinn
First goal in first game, first shift
And in a win, too.
 
 
Calgary Flames 1 at Winnipeg Jets 3
 
Slick moves from Byfuglien
He motors for a big man
The Jets are rolling. 
 
 
St. Louis Blues 4 at Vancouver Canucks 3
 
Blues up three-nothing
Before the Canucks wake up
Meaningless late goals
 
 
Colorado Avalanche 3 at Anaheim Ducks 0
 
You know things are bad
When Berra can shut you out
Ducks are a tire fire.
 
 
Minnesota Wild 1 at Los Angeles Kings 2 (OT)
 
Kings get their first win
Past a damn strong Wild team
Anze in OT.

NHL Games from 10/15/2015 (Haiku Games Recaps)

Dallas Stars 5 at Tampa Bay Lightning 3

Two losses in one
Hedman hurt on Benn's late hit
And porous Bishop.
 

Ottawa Senators 0 at Pittsburgh Penguins 2

The Pens worked it out
For the scoring stars to win
Grind out a shutout.


Chicago Blackhawks 1 at Washington Capitals 4

Punchless Chicago
And the Caps have Ovi back
Oshie's first since trade.


Nashville Predators 3 at New York Islanders 4

Ten thousand show up
And the Isles come back to win
Is Barclays home yet?


Buffalo Sabres 2 at Florida Panthers 3

Jaromir Jagr
Young models want to bang him
and a three point night.


New York Rangers 0 at Montreal Canadiens 3

Price knocks down Kreider
And stands over him with pride
Remember me, pal?


St. Louis Blues 4 at Edmonton Oilers 2

Nothing on defence
McDavid is improving
Taylor is good now.


Minnesota Wild 4 at Arizona Coyotes 3
 
Tired 'Yotes, fresh Wild
How long 'til Max passes Tie's points?
Two seasons? Three? Four?

NHL Games from 10/14/2015 (Haiku Game Recaps)

Ottawa Senators 7 at Columbus Blue Jackets 3
 
The Sens pour in goals
While Bob has no confidence
'Lumbus falls apart.
 
 
Chicago Blackhawks 0 at Philadelphia Flyers 3
 
Fans chant 'she said no'
As Kane skates around the ice
This won't die, Blackhawks.
 
 
Boston Bruins 6 at Colorado Avalanche 2
 
Four points for Jim Hayes
And 'The Monster' gets a win
Varlamov? Dude's trash.
 
 
Arizona Coyotes 4 at Anaheim Ducks 0
 
How about those 'Yotes
Rookie Duclair's hat trick
And Mike Smith is good?

Two goals with family there
Nice  way to start out.
 
 
Vancouver Canucks 3 at Los Angeles Kings 0
 
Lombardi's crying
And the Kings keep on losing.
Guess they need Richards.

In my Lightning hat
Stopped by an old Bruins fan:

Shutout for Neuvirth.

My crystal ball sucks.

Two goal game? Hell yeah.
