I wish you could have seen them!
Down three games to none in the first round
They battled back, refused to stay down
Calm and collected in face of elimination
Seven times they survived with determination
Sweating bleeding, cursing game after game
Battling night after night to live up to their name
Fans cheering and howling going crazy
To see their team lift the trophy of Lord Stanley
Didn’t matter who they faced off against
Sharks and Ducks, Hawks and Rangers–no chance
Against the Kings of Los Angeles, Dadd’s tea
It was sweet, bittersweet to have seen
When in double overtime, exhausted they scored
I cried, for them, for you, lifting the cup once more
I trust that you saw them
Looking down from heaven.
