Feb 1978 vs Penguins of old. 13-0 Canadiens. As I was seated behind Habs bench, Lafleur bolted down the right wing and entire crowd stood. He missed. I sat and my 8 year old voice screamed to my mom, 'That was Guy Lafleur!!' THe entire section turned to me and gave me a cheer. I remember the lingering smiling faces long after the cheer subsided. It was like being struck by a lightning bolt I think.
I also remember someone on the Penguins taking a slapshot in the head at center ice. It must have been a Montreal Dman, but the play was not in Montreal's zone and he was drilling it down the ice seems like. There was a huge pile of blood, but the guy was ok. No helmets.
I remember seeing the circus as a kid too. Similar feeling. I have recollections of seeing them in the late 70's/early 80's because my mom knew Geraldine Doucet (wife of Roger - awesome anthem singer, and then awesome anthem singer herself).
