Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Memorable Night in Vancouver

Every once in awhile, there are particular games that become etched in the memory banks and can be vividly recalled even as other recollections fade with the passage of time. Last night's contest in Vancouver between the Dallas Stars and the Canucks will be one of those rare games, at least for me.
