With sweet nothings the goaltender led them astray;
he seduced them with stories of playoff glory.
They chased after him,
like an ox to the slaughter.
Like rabbits they pursued the tempting carrot,
and were caught in a snare.
They were like birds flying into a window,
oblivious to the very thing that would cost them their lives.
