The Boston Bruins honored Guy Lafleur this afternoon before the match

Yesterday Quebec lost a very big man in Guy Lafleur. In addition to his many skills on the ice, he was basically a good man who died, leaving the whole province in mourning.

Enjoy your rest, Mr. Lafleur, you deserve it.

And while his death shook Quebec in particular, it goes without saying that it was everyone in hockey who was shaken by the news. In particular, we have seen that the Blue Jackets Twitter account has published a report in French to express its sympathy to all those directly or indirectly affected by the report. A little attention that deserves to be highlighted.

With great sadness, Columbus Blue Jackets heard the news of the death of the legendary @canadiensMTL Guy Lafleur. Sincere condolences to the Lafleur family, The @canadiensMTL organization and all the legendary # 10 fans.

However, the Boston Bruins also wanted to honor the memory of the blonde Demon today. During the afternoon match, they found time for a small ceremony, during which fans on the spot honored a moment of silence in honor of Lafleur.

The rivalry between the CH and the Bruins is not new, and Guy Lafleur was one of those who bothered the Bruins on the ice again and again. However, the Bostonians showed great respect for the player, but also for the man who was Lafleur.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Senators (who also attracted a lot of attention today) hold a similar ceremony tonight, by the way.

Note also that such honors have multiplied since QMJHL and Place Bell since yesterday. A little everywhere in Quebec, we seem to have especially kept Patrick Roy’s idea, that is, to offer him the monstrous applause we deserve.

As for the Canadian (who is on his way tonight, but will return to the Bell Center tomorrow, where we will certainly hold a ceremony in honor of Lafleur), tonight we will wear a small # 10 on the front of the jersey. height of players’ hearts.

On this occasion, I will also mention that CF Montreal will also honor Lafleur’s memory when he returns to Stade Saputo next weekend.

All these honors show us the extent to which Guy Lafleur has marked the minds of a large number of people throughout North America. It doesn’t matter if they are small or large gestures, they are all made to honor the memory of one of the greats of the history of sports and the history of Quebec, and it is also perfect.

Big thumbs up to all the people who had these great ideas, honestly.

Lots of
