The other day, owner and founder of Classic Auctions (and my boss), Marc Juteau, came into my office and gave me a beautiful vintage style (with fight strap) Yvon Lambert store model sweater, signed on the crest, which came from a Lambert charity golf tournament.
It was really nice of Marc to do this, and I greatly appreciate it.
When we talk about the unreal night of May 10, 1979, game seven of the semi-finals when Don Cherry and the Bruins were called for “too many men on the ice”, we first think of the Habs power play that followed, capped off by Guy Lafleur tying the game and sending it into overtime.
Nine minutes in, it was Lambert winning it after taking a pass from Mario Tremblay.
Lambert wasn’t finished there either. Two weeks later, he would net the Stanley Cup winner against the New York Rangers.
