Happy anniversary, Jean

It’s 40 years ago tonight that the legendary Jean Béliveau scored his 500th career goal for the Canadiens.

Enjoy this video and watch how Le Gros Bill celebrates his milestone marker. It comes at about 45 seconds of the clip, on his third goal of the night, and is greeted by Béliveau with the same understated class that has been the hallmark of his life.

A terrific tribute to Béliveau’s 500th is here at Eyes on the Prize. And link here to a fine read on the goal by the late Ted Blackman, published in The Gazette the next morning.
