    Scatchard mourns Moore

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- The Vancouver Canucks have planned a moment of silence before tonight's game against the Florida Panthers in honour of auto racer Greg Moore of Maple Ridge, B.C., who died Sunday in a CART race.
     
     Canucks forward Dave Scatchard knew Moore and is devastated by his death.
     
     "I don't know how it will work. I'll try to use that emotion," Scatchard told the Vancouver Sun. "We're professional athletes. We go out and play. I don't know how we do it sometimes, but it's almost like you can't afford to think about anything else or you'll get hurt.
     
     "I don't like thinking about it because I don't understand why bad things happen to good people."
     
     Scatchard said he and Moore, a lifelong Canucks' fan, saw each other socially several times a year.
     
     "I first met him when he came up to me in a restaurant and introduced himself," Scatchard said. "He said he really loved hockey and had been a Canucks' fan since he was a kid. We just started talking and ended up having dinner together. I got to know him pretty well."
