Quiet On Whyte

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,
Edmonton's often-jubilant Whyte Avenue took on the feel of a funeral procession Wednesday as despondent hockey fans began the long march home after the Oilers lost their second straight game in the Stanley Cup final. Most tried to sound optimistic, but their slow gait and the sombre looks on their faces told a different story. With Edmonton's 5-0 loss in Carolina Wednesday, the Oilers face a 2-0 deficit in their best-of-seven series and the outlook seems bleak. “It's definitely not impossible,” said David Christie, who had flown in from Inuvik, NWT, where he works, to watch the rest of the series with his hometown friends.
