Game of My Life
That year, I scored more goals than I ever had before. Part of the reason was that I was playing with Boomer [Geoffrion]. In the past, I had played with guys like Andy Bathgate and Rod Gilbert, who had big shots. I always fed them. But when I passed to Boomer, he'd send it back to me and say 'You shoot it'. It was funny, because Boomer was one of the first guys to use the slap shot a lot.
