The Last Shot
An April day/ Inside on a frozen sheet/
An original six team
/ Versus a motley bunch in green
But this was the day we would all rue
/ As the last one to wear the chance,
/ Was number 20, Yvon Corriveau.
With Habs sliding
/ Flailing with their sticks
/ The puck was handled
/ And the right net corner/
But Butterfly brilliance
/ Loomed large in the cage
/ A Conn Smythe winner
/ In relatively recent days.
/ His mind probably turned
/ Reviewing how to play
/ The kidís in green one-on-one breakaway.
/ We held our breaths,
/ But there wasnít a
/ Bulge in the twine
/ No ping from the post
/ Just a dull thud on the boards
/ Of the Forum, the building of the host.
The shot from our annointed hero,
/ However brief the honor was to be,
/ Went wide.
/ The great goalie
/ Never had to move
There would be no great memory
/ Of Number 20,
/ Yvon Corriveau.
