A few years ago, my friend and I bought tickets from a scalper to go watch a Habs - Rangers game. More importantly, it was the night Bernie Geoffrion's jersey number was retired. Of course, Geoffrion had only died a few days earlier and it was one of the most emotional nights at the Bell Centre that I could remember. Such a bittersweet moment.
I hope Blake knows that none of us expect him to be his grandfather. But his last name is synonymous with Habs "royalty", and we'll be cheering him on from the second he steps on the Bell Centre ice. Welcome back to your home away from home. All the best of luck.
