Game Summary - Game 11: Senators vs. Sharks in Haiku form

Sunday, October 27, 2013

by Bonk's Mullet


The Sens "played" the Sharks on Sunday afternoon in a game that experts described as "bad." The Senators actually outplayed the Sharks for most of the game, but were failed early by Craig Anderson, and made a few costly defensive errors.

More importantly, it was Hockey Fights Cancer night in Ottawa. You can text SENS to 45678 to donate $10 to the Hockey Fights Cancer Foundation or text SENATORS to the same number to donate $5. You can also donate online from this link. The game sucked today, but cancer sucks more, so please consider donating. More info here.

Instead of the usual summary format, I've decided to summarize the game in haiku form to appropriately summarize my sadness. I also asked people on Twitter to submit their own. Grab a tissue.

Thanks to @davethetaxman for the suggestion, as well as his haiku:
