Everything Is Going Well In Ottawa

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Is there a more beautiful thing than when the escapism of sports crosses over to real life to make a difference.

That’s just what these young Ottawa Senators are doing for Bryan Murray, the veteran general manager said Wednesday that his team’s improbable 19-3-3 run has provided some inspiration as he continues his battle with Stage 4 colon cancer.

"Absolutely," Murray said a day after an incredible comeback win over the Pittsburgh Penguins kept his team’s playoff hopes alive.

"My sister actually texted me and she was talking about the game (Tuesday) and she was asking me how I was feeling because she knows I had chemo yesterday," said Murray. "Well, you don’t sleep the night after you have chemo but I feel pretty good today because of the team. There’s no question."

One treads lightly when trying to make sense of hockey victories on the ice and a real-life battle with cancer off of it. You don’t what to trivialize what is such an emotional situation for the 72-year-old, life-long hockey man.
