When Dallas Cries, We Must Laugh

04/12/2007 at 8:10pm EDT
From the Dallas News, I see that their beat writer Mike Heika deals with some Texas anguish:
Mike Heika: Hey folks, it's a cloudy morning here in Vancouver and the world doesn't look quite as beautiful. Hmm, is that because of lack of sleep or because the bottom fell out? Well, let's get on to the questions and see if we can fix this thing.bbs: Mike, I felt like the Stars could have come away feeling positive about their performance last night – i.e. Luongo can be beat – yet it would be hard to be upbeat about losing that one. Most of the articles I read quoted mostly Turco. What was the attitude in the room last night?Mike Heika: They were disappointed. It was a hard game to lose. But at the same time, I thought several players felt they proved a lot to themselves. Mattias Norstrom was absolutely confident. Stu Barnes was calm and methodical. Brenden Morrow looked like he was ready to go out for Game 2 right there. I don't think this was the punch to the gut that it was to the fans. I feel sorry for you guys. Back in the old days, you'd stay up and win and be tired but giddy at the office the next day. This is brutal. You put your heart into the game and then lose, and I think that is mentally crippling.
