Oilers v. Avalanche - Psalm 51:1-7

Have mercy on us, O God,
for the sake of your unfailing love;
yes, for the sake of your great compassion
blot out our 5-1 defeat.

Wash away all of our penalties
and cleanse us from our defensive lapses.

For we know our transgressions,
because our captain is spouting off continually.

Yet against you only have we sinned
and lost to the Wild, which is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.

I was sinful in the first half of the season,
sinful, even in the pre-season.

Surely you desire victory for your children;
so teach us wisdom in the defensive zone.

Cleanse our concussions, and we will be better;
wash away our mental mistakes, and we will defeat the Avalanche.
