3/11/06...And another one bites the dust...
But, who is he, you may ask??
He, my friends, for you not of the hockey persuasion,
was the originator of the slap shot. When he played with
the Montreal Canadiens in the 50s & 60s, he would bring
his stick back over his head and let fly, bringing more
speed and power to the puck than the standard wrist shot.
And the 'Boom Boom'
That was the sound of the stick hitting the puck
and then puck hitting the boards.
So welcome to the All-Star team of the great hockey rink
in the sky,Bernie.
