from KK member Joe Pelletier,
Hockey legends are born in the NHL playoffs. Some gain instant immortality in a single moment, players like Pete Babando, Bobby Baun and Sudden Death Mel Hill. Others come out of nowhere, have the playoffs of their lives, only to disappear again soon after, just like Chris Kontos and John Druce. Some are seemingly born to play in the playoffs, always raising their game in the spring like Teeder Kennedy, Bernie Parent, Glenn Anderson and Claude Lemieux. Others are the true superstars of the game, separating themselves from regular season heroes with repeated championship runs like Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Mike Bossy and Steve Yzerman.
Joe Pelletier’s Legends of Hockey Network will honor all of the NHL Playoff Legends. Tune in every day of the NHL post season for new profiles. The first post season hero remembered is perhaps the greatest playoff player of all time - three time Conn Smythe Trophy recipient Patrick Roy.
