Lyrics of the song "Trus ne igraet v khokkey" ("The coward does not play hockey"):

The ears ring with the bold music of an attack...
Make an accurate pass, shoot hard!
And everything is right, if on the ice is
The Magnificent Five and a Goalkeeper!

Chorus:
The ice brotherhood combats hard
And we trust in courage of desperate guys
Real men play hockey,
No coward plays hockey!

Let the place behind the rival's net to be more frequently
Illuminated by red lamp's victorious flash!
But if there's a need, defends brilliantly
The Magnificent Five and a Goalkeeper!

Chorus

Many beautiful games would be seen
And we won't forget, we'll never forget as long ago
Gold and cups have been won at ice battles by
The Magnificent Five and a Goalkeeper!

Chorus
