-The Habs really look nonchalant about it, like they've been there before.
-Lemaire even then had a defensive anticipation that led to offense.
-Boy the Big M liked to take the slapshot.
-Beliveau at 39 was still fabulous.
-Pocket Rocket's goal is a thing of beauty.
-Eddie Johnston just sucked in net for this one.
I remember it very vividly...

For more than the Habs performance.

My father had a heart attack that nite (not because of the game), and almost died 2 days later.
