NHL Moving Forward

from the Mercury News,
Sharks Coach Ron Wilson taps his forehead with his index finger as he offers an explanation for the string of come-from-behind victories in the back-from-the-dead NHL this season. ``It's more what's going on between everybody's ears than what's actually happening on the ice,'' he said. New rules have made leads more difficult to protect, changing the mindset of players. ``There's a different feeling in your room now.'' There's also a different feeling in the arenas as fans, too, adapt to a changed game. It's only a month into the new season -- too soon, perhaps, for sweeping pronouncements -- but the NHL looks as if it is staging a successful comeback of its own from its labor problems.
