Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
Like Richard before him, when the Canadiens and Lafleur won, Quebec won. When Lafleur scored goals in a way only he could, Quebec scored. When Lafleur and the Canadiens brought home Stanley Cups five times in the spring, all of Quebec hitched a ride on their float as it inched along Ste. Catherine St.
When he gathered his legs beneath him deep in his zone for the start of one of his rink-length rushes, Lafleur conjured up visions of the best and most exciting players in NHL history.
When his speed and puck-handling swept him beyond one man and then another, there was no other NHLer like him.
