The number 18 retired.
Serge Savard's number 18 was erected before the game yesterday. A nice elocution by Scotty Bowman who said he was very priviledged to coach such talented players like Denis Savard, Larry Robinson and Guy Lapointe.
Then ''the senator'' himself talked to the crowd of the Bell Centre, thanking his family and ex-teammates which without them he would never be able to win 8 Stanley Cups. Great class from ''the senator''.
Then for the game itself, the Habs looked inspired by the ceremony and played a very solid game against the Atlanta Trashers and won 3-1.
