Best wishes go out to two Canadiens greats, tough old birds who currently are at home on the mend:
Hall of Famer and legendary Punch Line centreman Elmer Lach, who turns 90 in January, is recovering from a broken hip suffered in a recent fall. And stellar blueliner Dollard St. Laurent, a whippersnapper at 79, is recuperating from triple bypass surgery.
Get well soon, gents … we miss you at the Bell Centre!
