I remember it well. However (apologies on this) it was 1979. I went to the first two games in the old Forum, and was cheering for the Rangers. Growing up in Montreal, my two favorite teams were Chicago, and whoever was playing the Canadiens.

Rangers won the first game convincingly too.

Love the hockey talk here, and the signed pucks. Very cool. A good trip down memory lane.

Bob,
You are correct about the Year. Not sure how I got that wrong, but thanks for the correction.
Regardless of the year, it was a great run. I can still see that Potvin cheap shot on Nilsson. Every Rangers fan I know still thinks his injury cost us the cup. "Potvin Sucks"

Nice. Very impressive. I worked several years with former Ranger goalie Doug Soetaert

LOL Quite a few years ago.

I grew up in the east end of Montreal, as an English guy. It was a tough area. I was about a 20 minute walk to the Olympic Stadium, and eventually many people in the city wouldn't go to the stadium for a number of reasons, one being it was stuck so far in the East End of the city.

As kids, many of us English kids cheered for teams other than the Canadiens, and many English did cheer for them. I grew up in the Bobby Orr era, and I knew a lot of Boston fans at that time. The English / French dynamic of that city and province are difficult to explain if you've not lived in "deux solitudes".

Safe to say, I was a huge Expos and Alouettes fan, just not so much a Canadiens fan.

A good friend of mine married a cousin of Doug Soetaert, and was at their wedding. He was playing for the Canadiens at the time, and we were all playing industrial hockey (including the groom). I played goal for the team, and ended up striking a conversation with Doug. Now imagine, to me, this guy is living the dream.

So I ask him "When you're done playing in the NHL, are you gonna play afterwards?"
He looks at me and said "When I'm done in the NHL, I'm throwing my equipment over a cliff." He then goes on to tell me how tired he is of all aspects of hockey and the NHL.

I've often thought about that exchange that was over 25 years ago. I imagine he never did put his pads on again once he was done. And now me, I'm pushing 60 and still playing semi-competitive against 30-40 year olds. I love going out for 50 or more every winter with the guys, breaking a good sweat, and having a beer afterwards. I cannot imagine not having that out from life.
