Guy Lafleur



I have a very vivid memory of watching this game on television when I was a young boy. Guy Lafleur was the superstar of the NHL at the time, and once again he scored an enormous goal in the playoffs. Danny Gallivan, the master, was doing the play-by-play. It was bedlam in the Montreal Forum, the Mecca of hockey. I’m sure that millions of Canadians were watching that night and that many can remember it still.

Guy Lafleur, one of the legends of the game of hockey, died today at age 70.
