Positive Thinking and Winning. Interesting Article.

Not sure if this has been posted but i hope the rangers have read this...the knicks should read it too.

She (Pat Summitt) also said this: "At Tennessee, we have won games by the
margin of a single good thought."
The Caps lose playoff games by the margin of Ovechkin's
negative thoughts. They will do this for as long as they let
silly contentions about officiating and league conspiracies blind
them to the larger fact of their performance. Buried in Ovechkin
and McPhee's remarks is the suggestion that they were really the
better team. They weren't. They got purely outfought, especially
by the Rangers' third and fourth lines, and mentally collapsed.
The refs didn't play swarming defense that blocked 27 Capitals
shots in Game 7. The refs didn't hold Ovechkin to just one goal
and one assist in the entire series.
