It’s the night before Anaheim Ducks hockey, and every holiday deserves to be celebrated!
It’s finally here! The Anaheim Ducks take the ice tomorrow, and only one excruciatingly long day stands in our way. We’re gearing up for the beginning of the regular season, and I’m sure, just like me, you’ve already pulled out one of your jerseys and are ready for action! In the spirit of our favorite day of the year, I rewrote a Christmas classic to fit the theme of opening day. This rewrite of the Night Before Christmas is meant to be fun, so I hope you enjoy it!

The Night Before Ducks Hockey
‘Twas the night before Ducks hockey, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even Mickey Mouse
Our jerseys were hung in our closets with car
In hopes that Lord Stanely soon would be there;
The players have nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of playoffs danced in their heads;
And while we were sleeping, we dreamed of the game
We whistled, and shouted, called the players by name:
“Go, Getzy! Go, Manson! Go, RickRak and Silfy!
Win, Rico! Win, Lindholm! Win, Comtois, and Guhle!
Now score away, score away, score away all!
Stay out of the box, Ritchie, don’t start a brawl!”
And as pucks that before the goaltender do fly,
When met with the obstacle, Miller rarely lets them by;
But up towards the new the ‘Yotes still they flew
With a bag full of tricks, and Phil Kessel too;
And then, in a twinkling, we saw from the screen
Ryan Miller and his glove saving our team
As we drew in a breath and cheered from the crowd
Getzy went to the face-off circle, looking so proud
His head— how it twinkled! His dimples, how merry!
His skates freshly sharpened, all he was missing was Perry;
He spoke not a word but went straight to work
He put the puck on his stick; then turned with a jerk,
Then up the ice, he passed it to Jones
Who’s been working all night in all three zones;
He sprang to the puck, and the crowd gave a whistle
And up the ice he flew, like the down of a thistle
Max scored his first goal of the 2019-20 season
He looked better than ever after an amazing preseason;
And as the final buzzer sounded, the future looked bright
Then heard someone shout:
“Happy hockey season too all! I’ll see you again on Saturday night!”
