MONTREAL — P.O Joseph admitted it is a dream to play at the Bell Centre against the Montreal Canadiens. The rafters have 24 Stanley Cup banners and rows of retired jerseys.
Statues of Guy Lafleur, Maurice “Rocket” Richard, and Jean Beliveau stand guard outside.
For every Quebec kid who plays hockey, it is the dream. For every one of those players who makes it to the show, it is a rite of passage.
