In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to create an NHL version to the Bobby "Boris" Pickett classic The Monster Mash.

If you are ever skating on a rink and see some of the players mentioned in this song, I suggest you skate away like hell.

This is a little diddy I like to call the NHL Monster Bash.

I was playing hockey in the rink late one night, when to my eyes I saw an awful sight. For Eric Godard from the Pens jumped onto the ice, and what happened then wasn't very nice.

He did the Bash, he did the NHL Bash, the NHL Bash. It was a hockey player smash. He did the Bash. It caught on in a flash. He did the Bash, he did the NHL Bash.

From the Toronto Maple Leafs came Colton Orr, Carcillo from the Flyers asked "are you looking for more?" The tough guys all came from their humble abodes, to throw jolts at one another like shotgun loads.

Insert chorus here (I'm sure you get the idea).

Those goons they were all just having fun, George Parros yelled out the dance has just begun. The team included Zack Stortini from Edmonton, as well as Slapshots Dave Hanson and Christian, his son.

The scene was rockin', fans were diggin' the fights, what more can you expect on a Saturday night? More NHL bangers were about to arrive, and sit in the box and feel shame for five.

Out from the box David Clarkson did fly, threw a hay-maker and caught Jared Boll in the eye. He took off his lid and shook his fist and said "does anybody know what happened to Tony Twist?"

Now everything's cool, except that Riley Cote broke his hand, and the NHL Bash is the hit of the land. For you, the fans, this Bash was meant too, when you get to the rink tell them Don Cherry sent you.

Then you can Bash. Then you can NHL Bash.
