That Magic Moment!

I was in elementary school in Bells Corners (now Nepean) Ontario. The entire school was in the gym sitting on the floor watching it on those TV’s that were on tall stands craning our necks to get a good angle, just soaking in that game and the time out of class! The gym erupted with such joy after that goal; everyone jumped up, yelled and hugged.
At the time I was a Canadien’s fan and Ken Dryden was my favourite player. Although I’m now a Canuck’s fan, having moved to BC in 1975, Montreal will always have a spot in my heart and it was where I was actually born. We moved to the US in 2004 for work and although we live in a state with very few hockey fans, I proudly display both my Canuck’s flag and my Team Canada logos!
