Everything's on the Line Cause it's Cup Time


By Patrick Hoffman

With start of the playoffs, everything is on the line

Why? Because it's Cup time.

Games are exciting, fast, and over the top

At this time of year, teams never give up and they never stop

Defenses get tighter and play a different style

To score goals, it may take quite a while.

Everyone on the ice is on top of their game

This is why in playoff hockey, you cannot play the same.

When things are tied after the clock runs out of time

Have no fear because that means it's overtime.

Overtime hockey is the absolute best

When it comes to a fan's heart rate, it will be put the test.

Come June, one team will accomplish their ultimate goal

For the other team, losing will certainly take its toll.

With all that said, everything will be fine.

Why? Because it's Cup time.
