One More Win Needed......

Yes the Canucks failed to clinch against the Dallas Stars last night. Many Vancouverites were disappointed. There was an eerie silence all around GM Place when Brenden Morrow slotted in a Powerplay overtime goal. The commentator said that "Sometimes silence speaks the loudest voice." Naturally the players all looked dejected.

However, the veteran play-offs guys are more retrospective. Brian Smolinksi mentioned in an aftergame interview last night: "You've got to learn how to lose in order to learn how to win." [sic] Interesting comment, that one needs to learn to move on and persevere. As long as there is still a chance, go for it. That is the spirit. Vancouver still leads the best of seven series 3-2. Go Canucks Go!

Interesting that such philosophical comments come after a defeat. Such moving words are seldom visible in a victory.
