at the crease

Bunny Suit: After playing parts of eight seasons with the Montreal Canadiens (and sharing in four Stanley Cup championships), goaltender Michel Larocque joined Toronto’s Maple Leafs in March of 1981 in a trade that sent Robert Picard west. Back at the Forum in December of 1982, Larocque here focusses on facing former teammates for the second time as a Leaf, having lost the first time out. On this Tuesday night, with Mark Holden guarding Montreal’s goal, the teams tied 4-4. Holden and Larocque were in net the next night in Toronto, too, when the latter got his first decision over his former team in a 6-5 Leaf win. (Image: La Presse)
