Congratulations to Rjmech on his 25th NPP win!

Now for some hockey history:

Many years ago the Montreal Canadian great Maurice "Rocket" Richard was out for a few games with a wrist injury. After a very spirited game at the Montreal Forum, the color commentator asked The Rocket:

Commentator: "That was quite an exciting game Rocket."

Rocket: "Dat's for shore!"

Commentator: "So who is your pick for the 1st Start of the game?"

Rocket: "Well that would have to be Jean Beliveau, the best center on the Canadians, and I think, in the league. After all, he had 2 goals and an assist."

Commentator: "And the 2nd Star?"

Rocket: "I'd 'ave to pick my broder Ohnree. He scored a goal and was all over the ice on both offense and defense. I'm so glad my broder is on my team.

Commentator: "And your 3rd star?"

Rocket: "For da turd star, I have to pick Boom Boom Geoffrion. He had 2 assists and some good hits, eh? And he sticks up for his Montreal teammates too!"

Commentator: Well, if you had to come up with an honorable mention, who would that be?

Rocket (with a scowl on his face): "I guess I would have to say Gordie Howe. If it was not for his four goals, we would have won the game."
