Defining Moments

A DEFINING MOMENT…
IT’S WHAT WE ALL LOOK FOR…
IT’S WHAT SIDNEY CROSBY DELIVERED IN THE GOLD MEDAL GAME…
IT’S WHAT BRETT FARVE FAILED TO DELIVER…IN THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME…
WHEN YOU THINK OF BOBBY ORR…WHAT IMAGE COMES TO MIND…
NOW THINK OF BILL BUCKNER…
LASTNIGHT IN THE THIRD PERIOD OF GAME 4…
HOCKEY FANS IN THIS CITY WITNESSED NOT ONE…BUT TWO DEFINING MOMENTS…
THE FIRST CAME EARLY IN THE PERIOD…WITH THE KINGS LEADING 3-2…
ALEXANDER FROLOV WALKED IN ON A BREAKAWAY…
ROBERTO LUONGO MADE A GAME SAVING…PERHAPS…SERIES SAVING…STOP…
AND THAT SET THE STAGE FOR HENRIK SEDIN…
WHO SCORED THE WINNER WITH LESS THAN 3 MINUTES LEFT IN THE GAME…
HEADING INTO THESE PLAYOFFS…THERE WERE STILL QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THE SEDINS AND LUONGO COULD DELIVER AT THIS TIME OF YEAR…
IN 53 PLAYOFF GAMES…HENRIK HAD JUST 30 POINTS…DANIEL…JUST 28…
AS FOR LUONGO…IN 22 PLAYOFF GAMES…HE HAD PRODUCED A MERE 11 WINS…
AND OF COURSE THERE IS STILL THE MEMORY OF…GAME 6 IN CHICAGO…
BUT WHAT WE WITNESSED LASTNIGHT IS PROOF…THAT THE 3 HIGHEST PAID PLAYERS ON THIS TEAM…ARE CAPABLE OF MUCH MORE…
WITH THE SEASON ON THE LINE…THE BEST PLAYERS ON THE CANUCKS…PLAYED LIKE THE BEST PLAYERS…
NOW COMES THE TOUGH PART…
DOING IT AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT IN GAME 5…AND AGAIN SUNDAY IN LOS ANGELES…
THIS SEASON WILL NOT GOING TO BE JUDGED BY THE REGULAR SEASON…
THE WINNER OF A DIVISIONAL TITLE…IS THE ANSWER TO A TRIVIA QUESTION…
IT HAS BEEN 16 LONG YEARS SINCE THE LAST TIME THE CANUCKS MADE IT PAST THE SECOND ROUND…
AND ON PAPER…THIS TEAM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DO THAT…AND A LOT MORE…
BUT FOR THAT TO HAPPEN…IT WILL TAKE THE KIND OF EFFORT…WE SAW IN THE THIRD PERIOD LASTNIGHT…
AND A FEW MORE…”DEFINING MOMENTS”…
